About this Project

This blog comments on Canadian (and occasionally comparative) national security law to update my National Security Law textbook and now also my 2015 book, False Security: The Radicalization of Anti-terrorism, co-authored with Kent Roach.

Please also see www.antiterrorlaw.ca for Bill C-51-related analyses by Craig Forcese and Kent Roach.

For narrated lectures on various topics in national security law, please visit my 2017 "national security nutshell" series, available through iTunes.


For a continuing conversation on Canadian national security law and policy, please join Stephanie Carvin and me at A Podcast Called INTREPID.


Please also visit my archive of "secret law" in the security area.

A Podcast Called INTREPID Turns 30

Stephanie Carvin (NPSIA) and I have now reached the 30 episode point in our podcast series on Canadian national security law and policy. The direct URL is here. And listeners can subscribe on iTunes, Google Play and through most other podcast apps. To be honest, we started this as an experiment and it's become the equivalent (in terms of workload and logistics) of teaching another class. We seem to have around 2,300 daily subscribers and almost 7,000 monthly subscribers (or at least that's what our ISP estimates). And we're especially excited about past and present guests on the show. So we'll keep it up, sabbaticals notwithstanding. But if you think it's a useful addition to the national security studies space in Canada, feel free to let us know through iTunes review, Twitter or email.
