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 lingering Responsibility to Protect (R2P) issues raised by NATO’s 2011 intervention in Libya; the role of killer robots in future warfare; the relationship between undemocratic Salafism and the terrorist threat in Europe; the ongoing crisis in Burundi; and how to reestablish state authority in peace operations settings. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the hybrid nature of diplomacy in the 21st century; the first 100 days of Uzbekistan’s new president, Shavkat Mirziyoyev; the use of coercive diplomacy in The Gambia; how contested histories are undermining the rebuilding of trust in European security; and the possibility of Europe having to plan for a future in which the US is less willing to assume a leadership role in addressing international problems.
