The Security Studies Network (SSN) brings together scholars, students and practitioners interested in various aspects of international and domestic security.  We welcome the participation of colleagues whose work is theoretical or policy-oriented.  In short, the SSN seeks to provide a “common home” to those in Ottawa who share an interest in analyzing security issues, including those from different disciplinary backgrounds and approaches.

(The National Security Policy Network is now merged with the Security Studies Network. For their past events, click here.)
