This "national security law" blog site is now 12 years old. It has mostly served its purpose as a vessel for personal analysis and dicussion of national security law, tied to my 2007 and 2015 books. That 2007 book -- National Security Law -- is now almost written in second edition, co-authored with Leah West (newly appointed to teach national security law at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University). The time has come, therefore, to rethink this blog. If will remain active, although I will soon shift this platform into a consolidated, single archive of my own blog entries on all the areas on which I write. More importantly, we have decided to copy shamlessly the model of Just Security and Lawfare blogs and launch a more collaborative Canadian national security and law blogging site. It is built around the podcast series Stephanie Carvin and I created in 2017 and, yes, it is called: A Blog Called INTREPID. We have gone live today. Please bookmark us and visit us often for hearty Canadian national security law and policy geekery.
