Photo caption and link: Italy in lockdown as search widens for ‘patient zero’

Reporting to you from self-isolation, we at the DRN are sending our love and thoughts to everyone affected by COVID-19.

While the world battles with uncertainty and fear, we want our network to know that we are (physically and virtually) here to support each other - as well as provide extra reading for those long days of quarantine...

For new friends, welcome! We are an interdisciplinary network of Masters, PhD and Early Career Researchers focused on defence, security & military topics in relation to policy, strategy, history, culture & society. We hope you find our network interesting, exciting, informative and supportive.

For old friends, thanks for your continued involvement. We would be nothing without you! This March, while all eyes are on the worldwide state of emergency following the COVID-19 pandemic, we're discussing being busy in isolation, supporting our community, and keeping up with counterinsurgency.
