Dimitrios Machairas is a freelance researcher and writer in the field of international affairs, defence and security. He holds an MA in War Studies from King’s College London, and a BA in International Relations. His main areas of interest include the use of private military force, nuclear proliferation and other geopolitical, geostrategic, ethical and philosophical aspects of international security.


This blog aspires to provide perceptive and illuminating analyses of selected international security issues, in a way analogous to a probe: by penetrating deep into the core of the matter with surgical precision, and transmitting a 360° inside view. It will start with the private military/security industry and its far-reaching political, ethical and normative implications.
