The NATO Association of Canada publishes special reports which serve as more comprehensive, textured, critical pieces rather than the traditional article format. Special reports include policy briefs, communiques, critiques, and/or a compilation of works in a journal format. In order to facilitate these publications,  the NATO Association of Canada often partners with other organizations, members of the military (officers, generals etc), federal government agencies, members of the Canadian government, diplomats, and academics, as well as members of the NATO Association itself, including Editors, Research Fellows, and Analysts.
