One of the upsides of supervising students whose work is outside my expertise is that I get to be mighty proud when they contribute to debates in ways that I cannot.
Aisha Ahmad was interviewed and said this on the reactions to Paris and our next steps. Just an excellent perspective. And there will be more of it as I go to Toronto on Friday to sit on a panel with her and some other folks to talk about the event and the aftermath. So, if you are in the Toronto area on Friday, November 20th, check it out at the Munk School at U of T. I will say a few things about NATO's relevance/reactions while Aisha will continue to say far smarter stuff about ISIS, Islamist politics and such.
