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 evolving technical and policy dimensions of missile defense in Europe; the relationship between global power distribution and warfighting in the 21st century; the roles of ideology and cultural violence in Darfur; the present status of the International Criminal Court; and the unmaking of the existing global order. Then, in our second SW series, we look at how Egypt’s youth could decide the country’s fate; Afghanistan’s uncertain future; the tensions between migration quotas and EU market access in Switzerland; the assaults by authoritarian states against civil society; and the use of “robocops” by law enforcement agencies in tomorrow’s cities.
