Dear Patron: For those of you who haven’t visited us in a while, please note that the Resources portion of the CSS website is the successor to the International Relations and Security Network (ISN). As in the case of its predecessor, the fundamental purpose of the Resources section is outreach -- i.e., it features the publications and analyses of CSS experts, external partners and other like-minded institutions in order to promote further dialogue on important international relations and security-related issues.

This Week's Two Security Watch Series

This week, our first Security Watch (SW) series focuses on the early conceptual development of hybrid warfare; the wisdom of updating NATO’s maritime strategy; the military tasks required by the new EU Global Strategy; how the so-called Islamic State globalized its bloody Ramadan campaign; and the economic dimensions of Russian security. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the ongoing struggle to reform the UN Security Council; the benefits Big Data can provide aid agencies; Germany’s new leadership role in the EU; the relationship between climate change and future food production; and what Europe can learn by comparing the TTP and TTIP.
