NATO Review asked the medical advisor to the NATO International Military Staff to provide an outline of how he sees the changes in treatment, approach and attitude to treating injuries over the last century - and the effect they've had on how the military works.
28 February 2014 Russia's interest in what happens in Afghanistan and Central Asia is well known. What isn't is how they see their involvement in the region after 2014, after the ISAF operation in Afghanistan ends. NATO Review asks what the Russian approach will be and what issues are of most interest to them.
18 February 2014 Both NATO and Russia have made strong claims that they want to collaborate more with each other. Russia wants more collaboration in areas like missile defence. NATO wants more linking up in activities covered by the NATO-Russia Council. Yet despite both sides' enthusiasm, collaboration is at one of its lowest levels for ages. There is effectively a 'pause' in many areas. How did this happen? And what can be done to solve it?
5 August 2013 In this edition of NATO Review, we've tried to offer the best of both worlds: expert analysis on a wide range of security areas delivered concisely.

22 October 2011 Imagine being an Afghan-American in September and October 2001. Both your countries were attacked. One by the other. How did Afghan-Americans react? Where were their allegiances?
