Dr. Sarah-Myriam Martin-Brûlé of Bishop’s University Department of Politics and International Studies is playing an important role in the launch of the Network for Strategic Analysis, as part of the Department of National Defence’s Mobilizing Insights in Defence and Security (MINDS) program. The Network is to study evolving defence and security issues in order to inform crucial policy decisions about national security and defence.
Dr. Martin-Brûlé will be heading a major axis of the Network co-directed by Justin Massie (UQAM) and Stéfanie von Hlatky (Queen’s University), which has just been granted $750,000 by the Department of National Defence and which brings together over 60 researchers, collaborators and partners.
Dr. Martin-Brûlé will be heading the Multilateral security cooperation and the role of international organizations branch of the initiative. The other two axes of the three-pronged MINDS initiative will focus on the evolving role of great powers in an uncertain world order and on the future of defence capacity-building activities with global partners.
The Network aims to mobilize innovative research expertise across Canada in both official languages, to generate new insights, disseminate strategic analysis to the Government of Canada, its partners and the public to inform policy decisions, and to train and develop the next generation of defence and security experts.
