Preview: Canadian Naval Review Vol. 19 No. 1 – Australian Naval Review Joint Issue

By Dr. Ann Griffiths, 10 May 2023

It’s time for another issue of Canadian Naval Review. And this time we have a real treat in store for you! The spring issue is a joint issue with Australian Naval Review. A chance email exchange led to the idea, and we (the Editors of CNR and ANR) thought it would be interesting.

We agreed on a list of topics pertinent to both countries. The list is as follows:

•      the national security climate, and the role of the navy in addressing threats;

•      climate change and its impact on the Australian and Canadian navies;

•      recruitment and retention in the two navies; and

•      submarines.

We then found Australian and Canadian authors to write about the topics. We also managed to convince the Chief of Navy, RAN, Vice-Admiral Mark Hammond, and Commander RCN Vice-Admiral Angus Topshee, to say a few words. The result, as you will see, is a collection of articles that are both fascinating and timely.

In this issue, there are no columnists, no Making Waves contributions and no book reviews. There are eight articles – four from the Australian perspective and four from the Canadian perspective. And of course there are amazing photos to illustrate everything! We hope that you will find this joint issue as interesting as we have! See the Table of Contents below.
