My name is Philip Shetler-Jones. Over the last couple of decades I have alternated between attempts at scholarship (on East Asia, particularly Japan, international organisations and security), and professional work in the military, in a humanitarian NGO and in various international organizations (UN, EU, NATO, ASEAN), specializing in policy, planning and intelligence work with peacekeeping / crisis management operations. Recently I have started to re-balance back to concentrate on the connections between European and Asian Security policy.
I am currently living in Brussels and working as an independent consultant.
I would be delighted to hear from you if you have ideas about this blog or other things to discuss. I can be reached at email@example.com
