The e-Notes are articles covering topical issues.

The views expressed in the e-Notes are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the Royal Higher Institute for Defence, the Belgian Defence or the Belgian Government. The e-Notes are, as a rule, written in the author’s mother tongue, and some are translated in the other working languages of the RHID (French, Dutch, English).
