Moving Beyond Reflection and Discussion: The Case for Canada to Craft a National Security Strategy [open pdf - 642KB]
From the Thesis Abstract: "This paper engages the reader in understanding the vital role a national security strategy plays in the policy-strategy relationship as a tool to centrally manage all instruments of national power in the pursuit of Canada's interests. Moreover, through an examination of the global security environment, the application of power and the conceptual approaches a state may take to national security strategy formulation, this paper demonstrates the relevance and value a national security strategy could bring to Canada's national security framework. Strategies are not born of 'immaculate conception.' A positive change is required in Canada's national security framework."
