Dear Patron: 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 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 Northeast Asia’s evolving security order and what the EU can do to improve it; the number of suicide bombings that occurred in 2016; how the tensions in the South China Sea might evolve over the next 2-3 years; what it will take to make a “surge in [the] diplomacy for peace” successful; and what are the key pillars of Russian strategy. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the three articles in Russian Analytical Digest #196; the possibility of an “African Spring”; what Europe can do to help preserve Tunisia´s fragile democracy; the strategic adjustments the new Trump administration might provoke in Asia; and why we collectively need to “decolonize” socio-political norms.
