Dr. John Hemmings shared his perspectives on “The COVID-19 Crisis and the Coming Cold War” for DKI APCSS’ Security Nexus. Here is an excerpt from the article: The COVID-19 Crisis has been a significant global event, putting stress on states in how they respond, exasperating geopolitical tensions between great powers, and impacting manufacturing and shipping.

Dr. Srini Sitaraman has a new article published in the Spring 2020 issue of the Journal of European, Middle Eastern, and African Affairs published by the Air University Press, Maxwell, AFB, AL.

Presently humans believe that they can control, contain, [...]
