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 potential pitfalls of European states creating an independent nuclear deterrent of their own; the gulf that exists between the European Union’s global security strategy and its actual implementation; the links between last December’s terrorist attack in Berlin and the “Abu Walaa” recruiting network; a review of international arms transfers in 2016; and the recent ‘crowdsourcing’ of local terrorist attacks. Then, in our second SW series, we look at identity politics in Russia; China’s Kashmir policies and crisis management in South Asia; the possibility of reviving the African Union’s maritime strategy; the challenges liberal peace- and state-building efforts face in divided societies; and Ukraine´s ongoing failure to implement anti-corruption reforms.
