Since the dawn of time, mankind has birthed superb strategists. It is no coincidence that virtually every military staff college is inspired by Sun Tzu, Niccolò Machiavelli, and Carl von Clausewitz. Though not solely confined to the military realm, strategy and intelligence continue to remain central elements of international security.
What is strategy and how do countries pursue it? To what extent is strategic culture useful in explaining policy? Which type of strategy are we to see in the future? Likewise, how do governments approach intelligence and intelligence sharing? How do new technologies and social media impact intelligence gathering? What does this all mean to armed forces and paramilitary non-state actors?
