201610_october_inside-policy-coverOctober 2016: A World of Challenges for NATO

The Cold War is long over, but there’s still plenty for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to do. That’s the message from MLI Munk Senior Fellow Shuvaloy Majumdar and his co-author, documentary filmmaker Marcus Kolga, in the cover story of the October 2016 edition of Inside Policy.

It is a different world from the Soviet era, but Russian President Vladimir Putin seems intent on re-establishing his nation’s former glory, and destabilizing his rivals in the process. Majumdar and Kolga write that Canada has a leadership role to play as NATO faces challenges in the Ukraine, the Baltics and Arctic, along the alliance’s southern flank in Syria, and even in cyber space.
