Upcoming CNR issue – Vol 16.1

Preview: Canadian Naval Review, Vol. 16, No. 1 (2020) - 10 Years of the NSPS / NSS

Little did we know a few months ago when we decided to make the spring issue of CNR a theme issue that the world would change so dramatically. If we had a crystal ball, we could have made it a theme issue about pandemics and navies. But we don’t. We decided that, as we hit the 10-year anniversary of its creation, the time was ripe to examine the National Shipbuilding (Procurement) Strategy.

CNR theme issue Vol. 16, No. 1 (2020)

The NSS is the largest shipbuilding program that Canada has implemented since the Second World War. In the spring issue, we examine the NSS from many angles. How did the program come into being? Why was it created? And what is happening with it? What are other countries in similar situations doing? Will it accomplish its goals? What is missing from it? And what are the strengths and shortcomings of the strategy? You have questions, we have answers. And as usual, we have illustrated the issue with beautiful photos.

The spring issue is coming soon. We are fortunate that our graphic designers and our printer are still working (although the printer is currently working at reduced hours). If you don’t have a subscription yet, you should get one so you don’t miss anything.

Keep your eyes on the CNR Twitter account for details (CdnNavalReview). And see the full table of contents below.
