The Liu Institute for Global Issues at the UBC School of Public Policy and Global Affairs invites applications to the Simons Award in Nuclear Disarmament and Global Security from UBC students intending to undertake research on topics broadly related to nuclear disarmament, including nuclear energy and global security. This award is funded by an endowment provided by The Simons Foundation Canada.
This issue is debated in the current Legion Magazine with The Simons Foundation Canada's Senior Fellow in Arctic Security and Defence, Ernie Regehr, arguing the “No” side and David Bercuson, of the University of Calgary’s Centre for Military, Security, and Strategic Studies, arguing “Yes.” Regehr notes that with today’s increasingly accessible Arctic, and Russia being its most prominent military presence, the question of boosting Canada’s Arctic military operations is a prudent one, but context matters.
