Conflict Observer is a stand-alone platform offering an opportunity to anyone who wishes to write about international security.

Founded in 2014, Conflict Observer (CO) has been continuously promoting independent, professional news for anyone who is interested by international security.

The founder, Jonathan Wade, is a combat veteran of Afghanistan who served 14 years in the Canadian Forces. After his career, Jonathan decided to create a platform where writers could share their opinions without any strict guidelines — a great opportunity for aspiring analyst, and students.
