Recent additions

— In 2015, we completed an update of the whole Organizations section and incorporated a few educations videos.

— We are now also covering critical global security issues: Chemical Warfare, Child Soldiers, Climate Change, Conflict Minerals, Cyber-Crime, Cyber-Warfare, Drug Trafficking, Exploitation of the Arctic Region, Food Security, and the South China Sea Conflict,

— Ironically, now that the study of the privatization of security is a mainstream topic, there seems to be less university departments specifically focusing on it. We want to identify new university programs focusing on PMCs and update that section of our website.
