Top 5 by Venus in Arms – week 44

(a premise: the first delay ever in the publication of our Top-5 was caused by the post-ISA2015 jet leg…)

The first suggestion is related precisely to the ISA. We remember the upcoming conferences. Among others we recommend ISA 2020 (Honolulu, Hawai – March 25th-28th) and ISA 2021 (Las Vegas, Nevada – April 7th-10th).

Still at the ISA 2015 (this year hosted in New Orleans). Here you’ll find the report by Duck of Minerva about the blog awards reception. These are the main results. Best Independent Blog: Dart Throwing Chimp.  Best Group Blog:  The Monkey Cage. Best New Blogger:  Allison Beth Hodgkins. Best Blog Post:  Erica Chenoweth, “Nonviolent Conflicts in 2014 That you May have Missed Because They Were Nonviolent” at Political Violence at a Glance.

An interesting analysis on leaks and intelligence cooperation by The Monkey Cage. According to J. I. Walsh: “Greater limits on intelligence sharing might restrict states’ ability to counter transnational terrorist groups and other threats to peace and stability”

Foreign Fighters and…luxury resort! The Guardian illustrates a surge in departures of young men from Maldives for Syria. 4 people have been stopped by authorities. But between 50 and 100 from the country of 300,000 have joined “the jihad”.

Finally, something on the controversial F-35. Look at the updated analysis by Jane’s on the “improvements” (reported by the Lockheed Martin) of the warplanes, after months (years?) of problems and obstacles.
