Expert Briefing Series

Through the Expert Briefing Series, MINDS invites top Canadian and International defence and security experts to brief a Government of Canada audience on issues of priority for DND/CAF.

This flexible tool allows the DND to respond to an evolving security environment. Having access to a variety of defence and security perspectives helps to ensure defence policy-making is both evidence-based and timely.

As part of their engagement at National Defence, visiting experts deliver presentations to and hold discussions with officials from DND/CAF and other government departments and agencies. It helps DND/CAF and its whole-of-government partners develop and maintain in-depth and nuanced knowledge and perspectives on defence and security issues.

The Expert Briefing Series is available to Government of Canada personnel outside the National Capital Region through video teleconferencing.

If you are currently researching issues relevant to defence and security and are interested in presenting your research to National Defence or the Canadian Armed Forces, please contact the MINDS team at
