Cat’s daily selection of top links FromOverHere #41

25 Nov

Here are today’s hot links on strategy and international affairs:

1. The axis of no: how recent foreign policy challenges are making accidental allies out of Russia and China

2. Securitising pandemics: article reviewing the benefits in increased implementation that comes from securitising cross-boundary complex threats – but points to obstacles that remain

3. Social media and political movements: last month’s Hague Conference exploring the changing face of citizen action is a nice summary of the hopes, bombast, scepticism and political continuity in the debate about how social media changes political movements

4. Canadian confusion about Germany: they are two countries with relatively common foreign policy positions, but Germany’s recent posture is confusing its erstwhile partner

5. The extent of the damage to the world’s natural systems means we are at a “constitutional moment” in environmental governance: interesting ideas from the Planet Under Pressure consortium as Durban marks the lead up to Rio+20
