Welcome to BeyondDefence, Bringing You the Story Behind the Story

Defence and Security are political. We all know that the stories we read in the papers, magazines, news sites and industry journals only captures the top layer of trends which historians will later paint much differently. This site will bring you the social, economic, strategic and technological trends and realities that underpin security policy globally using a variety of lenses new to the field of security policy. Our mission is to provide you with different ways of looking at security policy questions that transcends existing political camps and will facilitate greater security through greater understanding.

While we get started, we’ll be reposting a number of articles from the old blog, swiftly to be followed by new content. Enjoy, and please remember to like and comment so that we can bring our content to wider audiences.
