International Affairs is far greater than the sum of its parts; it’s an integrated web of diverse obstacles, ever-changing, evolving with the continued changes in policy and governance — it encroaches all aspects of our lives, whether we’re aware of it or not. To help you make sense of what is happening around us, both as a society and politically, NPSIA features expert analysis and commentary on politics and global affairs through podcast series and regular appearances in national media.
Join hosts Stephen Saideman (NPSIA, Carleton University) and Stefanie von Hlatky (Queen’s University), on “Battle Rhythm”, co-produced with the Canadian Defence and Security Network (CDSN) and released every second Wednesday. The podcast features a timely discussion on the defence and security issues of the day, as well as feature conversations with academics and graduate students.
IN “A PODCAST CALLED INTREPID” Stephanie Carvin (NPSIA, Carleton University) and Craig Forcese (Faculty of Law, uOttawa) discuss and debate issues in Canadian national security law and policy, sometimes ripped from the headlines, and in other instances, just because they seem interesting.
A podcast diving into all things related to international affairs and policy analysis. Produced and recorded by students and alumni at Carleton University and presented by iAffairs Canada.
