The Canadian Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies held a conference on Friday to suggest what will be the challenges in the year ahead. As a card carrying member of the CCISS, I got to help organize the conference and moderate the last panel. Rob McRae and the grad students involved deserve most of the credit with the panelists getting the rest as it went really well. Each panel was engaging, provocative and chockful of information. Having spent this fall teaching a course on Contemporary International Security, I felt kind of schooled by these folks who had excellent perspectives on much of the stuff we had been talking about in class.
