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 the US military’s dubious budgeting practices, particularly in the case of overseas contingency operations; the credibility of India’s missile deterrence, as perceived by China; the subsequent fallout from the P5+1’s nuclear deal with Iran; the international community’s response to the surge in armed conflict; and the outdated nature of disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) programs. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the economic impact of violence in Latin America and the Caribbean, including what it can teach the EU; America’s wobbly commitment to internationalism; Russia’s ongoing ‘gas games’ in Europe; the latest breakdown of Cyprus’ bi-communal negotiations; and what the US Military’s next National Defense Strategy should emphasize.
