Working Papers

The CSDS Working Papers series provides an outlet for the relatively quick dissemination of research in progress by Centre Faculty and Research Associates, Pre- and Post-Doctoral Fellows, and students on topics related to Canadian and international security and defence issues. Working Papers are published electronically on an occasional basis and are reviewed internally. The views expressed are those of individual authors and not necessarily those of CSDS or the Department of National Defence. The CSDS Working Papers series continues the NPSIA Occasional Paper Series.
