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 Chemical Weapons Convention and its troubles; Chinese cyber espionage against the US and Taiwan; the role of mobility and attrition in the Islamic State’s defense of Mosul; the latter group's pronounced criminal identity; and Africa’s attempts to prevent future genocides. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the difficult defense choices facing the next French president; the cultural and political rise of Israel's Mizrahim; the politicizing of humanitarian aid; the Takfiri ideology promoted by the so-called Islamic State; and the links between food crises & violence in East, South and West Africa.
