As in the past, we will continue to present the publications and analyses of CSS experts, external partners and like-minded institutions in order to promote further dialogue on important international relations and security-related issues. As for our Digital Library, we will continue to add new publications and articles to it on a constant basis.

This Week's Two Security Watch Series

This week, our first Security Watch (SW) series focuses on the clearance of unexploded ordinances created by UN peacekeeping operations; the lessons learned from the 1995 international intervention in Bosnia and Herzegovina; and how the US, South Korea and Japan can enhance the deterrence capabilities in the face of North Korea’s developing nuclear program. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the Trump administration’s preparations to end the Iran nuclear deal and what this means for trans-Atlantic relations; the 30 July Constituent Assembly vote in Venezuela; and Russia’s Border Dispute with Belarus.
