Canada in the World: Youth Dialogue on Emerging International Security Challenges

The NATO Association of Canada (NAOC) presents a publication with pieces focused on examining issues and threats related to international security. Written entirely by young professionals, this publication aims to create a more informed citizenry and provide engaging discourse on the fluid and fast paced environment of global security. The NAOC would like to thank the editing team and all of the authors for contributing to this publication.

Below is an excerpt from the Introduction:

In the Wales Summit Declaration of 2014, NATO member states agreed that the aggressive actions in Ukraine, the growing instability in the Middle East and North Africa, and the “transnational and multidimensional” threats around the world are fundamentally challenging international security. “These could all have long-term consequences for peace and security in the Euro-Atlantic region and stability across the globe.” These changes to the international security environment mean that NATO, and other international organizations, need to remain vigilant. “Political will, resources, and capabilities” are at the core of facing any emerging international security challenges in future decades.
