Connections vol.12, no.4, Fall 2013

Two of the papers in the Fall 2013 issue of Connections look into the legitimacy in the use of force in cyber space in three recent cyber attacks and the engagement between NATO/U.S. and Russia in the cyber domain. Another article treats the dilemma of transparency vs. confidentiality in the oversight of security agencies and the experience with parliamentary committees of inquiry in Germany. The fourth article examines the paradigm shift in the discourse on energy security, and the final one - the causes for vulnerability of Western youth to Al Qaeda's ideological recruitment.
