We explore all of the key issues in international and national security...

How do wars start? and How do they end?

Explore this topic...

The fundamental question that sparked the field of international relations, and is its oldest topic of study, is why wars break out. Equally as important is under what conditions they end. Here at Strategy Connections, we cover both classic and contemporary works on these questions - and explore their practical implications.

How do international institutions affect state actions?

Explore this topic...

What is the role of international institutions such as the UN, NATO, WTO, and others in helping states cooperate?  Do they help change behavior and interests of states, or simply reflect the interests of the states that created and support them?  Regardless of the answers, a great deal of foreign policy effort is put into these organizations.  How they might help protect or advance our interests is worthy of study.

What type of grand strategy should we pursue?

Explore this topic...

Grand strategy is the practical subject most closely associated with both international relations and national security.  Ideally, it bridges the divide between the two, leveraging insight and applying them to secure national interests.  Grand strategy is the fundamental “art of the state” that determines the state’s long-term viability.  Building these types of connections between theory and practice is the fundamental purpose of this site and grand strategy is a core topic.

What is the best use of hard power to assure security?

Explore this topic...

Simply put, the study of military affairs is focused on using the armed forces to advance political objectives related to national security.  Traditionally, this has been focused on deterring and fighting actual wars, though the military has increasingly been used to advance national interests through other activities, as well.  Determining how the military instrument of power should be used to best secure national interests is a key subject at this site.

What should be done to promote human rights abroad?

Explore this topic...

The subject of human security deals directly with the problems of ensuring the safety of populations, rather than the state itself.  In today’s world, we frequently see that the most heart-wrenching problems are those that occur when marginalized populations are neglected or directly abused by the state power structures.  Although this topic hasn't been a traditional topic in international relations, it is becoming more important in the discipline and the conduct of modern diplomacy, as well as war, requires an understanding of this topic.

What impact does the international economy have on politics?

Explore this topic...

One of the truly important interests of leading states is ensuring a strong economy.  We are currently at the pinnacle of inter-connectedness among states, so changes in the global economy have impacts at home.  Financial resources provide not only the ability to generate military power when interests are threatened, but also provide influence in peacetime.  Understanding economic issues and their connections to politics remains a key area of study for national security professionals and scholars.
