The International security horizon at the end of 2021 was dominated by two intensifying confrontations involving nuclear-armed great powers. One was between Russia and Ukraine, with the United States and its allies vocally opposing the Russian military build-up on Ukraine’s borders; the other was between China and the USA, as the former intensified its pressure on Taiwan.1 Although neither confrontation had exploded into open warfare by the end of 2021, Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February 2022 and full-scale war ensued. In the case of China and Taiwan, the outcome at the time of writing (mid April 2022) remains uncertain, although air incursions continued in 2022.2
