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 how home countries should cope with returning foreign fighters; the role Balkan fighters are playing in Syria, Ukraine and beyond; how Iran, Russia and the Taliban will shape the future of Afghanistan; the overarching trends of armed conflict from 1946 to 2016; and the benefits of economic sanctions as an instrument of foreign policy. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the relationship between mediation and violent conflicts; how Europe can avoid another crisis in Egypt; Mexico’s worsening ‘war without a name’; post-truth politics and the securitization of fake news; and why one might want to reject globalization, beyond the familiar reasons of inequality and xenophobia.
