This week, our hard power-centered Security Watch (SW) series focuses on the US Navy’s outdated concept of sea power; whether the EU’s Nordic Battlegroup will ever be sent into action; the 7 problems with John Kerry’s idea of an ‘Iranian nuclear clock’; the surprising results of the PLA’s ‘Stride 2014’ exercises; and the current state of Russia’s defense industry. Then, in our second, more wide-ranging SW series, we look at how Europe can contain Islamic extremism and prevent further Charlie Hebdo-style attacks; the DR Congo’s economic development options; Turkey’s relations with the United States; the private sector’s potential involvement in combating human trafficking; and what the history of cartography reveals about the problem of ‘delimitation’.
