Restoring Trust and Building Bridges: Addressing Online Radicalization in Africa

17 mai 2020 Paix et sécurité

Terrorists use the internet and social media to radicalize youth by exploiting general distrust in governments. African governments have responded to this threat by passing politically motivated internet limitation laws, which only exacerbate existing grievances and mistrust. Instead, African governments should build upon existing models of community policing and embrace an inclusive regional community online policing consortium through the leadership of the African Union.

14 mars 2020 Paix et sécurité

A desire for quick and easy fixes has emerged among the Ukrainian population.

Hypersonic Weapons: The New Grand Equalizer for Deterrence?

13 janvier 2019 Paix et sécurité

Hypersonic technology, largely viewed as a threat to national security, could balance the capabilities of nuclear weapons states and restore deterrence to a pre-missile defense proliferation state. In light of the recent US withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, states should pursue multilateral regulation of hypersonic technology. Improved detection systems are needed for functioning deterrence.
