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 “new wars” China faces in Xinjiang and Tibet; the pressing need for a revised global non-proliferation agenda; the virtues of presence as a defense strategy; the utility of development agendas that bridge the development–security gap; and the varied nature of recent migration flows. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the demographic dimensions of unregulated migration; the probable consequences of the military coup in Turkey; how the expertise used to deal with urban street gangs might be applied to jihadists; the current status of governance, accountability and security in Nigeria; and the possibility of using an “Iran solution” to blunt North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.
