    Cyber Security at Civil Nuclear Facilities: Understanding the Risks

    The risk of a serious cyber attack on civil nuclear infrastructure is growing, as facilities become ever more reliant on digital systems and make increasing use of commercial ‘off-the-shelf’ software, according to a new Chatham House report.

    The Asia-Pacific Power Balance: Beyond the US–China Narrative

    The predominant narrative of bipolarity between the United States and China is neither an accurate reflection of the Asia-Pacific region today nor a prediction of its future.

    Opening the archives: The USSR’s voice of opposition

    At their gatherings Soviet dissidents would share an ironic toast while raising their glasses, ‘To our hopeless cause!’ This reinforces the common view that opponents of the Communist regime were often intelligent people who did not expect their activities to change the system.

    Jargonbuster: Taking issue with ‘issues around’

    It has been around for many years now, ever since it escaped from the groves of social science, but ‘issues around’ is not a form of speaking or writing to which some of us will ever be reconciled. It is now entrenched like Japanese knotweed in the English language. We will never get rid of it. One day the daughters and sons of our sons and daughters might not notice it any more and might think it a native plant. But, until that day, it will be a marker of lazy thought. 

    It is, those of us with ears know, a hybrid of two invasive species.
