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 reliability of proxies in Syria; the dubious utility of “lessons learned” approaches to studying war; the recruiting of child soldiers in Africa; the South China Sea arbitration decision; and the ethical questions surrounding autonomous weapon systems. Then, in our SW series, we look at the EU’s role in helping precipitate the Brexit; Turkey’s current political Game of Thrones; the “three speeds” of the Venezuelan crisis; how the Ebola epidemic affected the politics and stability of the Mano River Basin; and the unfolding geopolitical impact of China in Latin America.
