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 concept of ‘fairness’ in nuclear disarmament; Iran’s new way of war, particularly in Syria; the rise of Uyghur militancy in and beyond Southeast Asia;  the navy the US actually needs; and the political violence that marred Africa during 2016. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the necessary link between the 2015 Paris Agreement and climate engineering; the interplay between public protests and politics in Armenia; the potential impact of the OSCE on European security; Philippine President Duterte’s troubles with a Maoist insurgency; and how the UNSC can help improve climate-sensitive decision making.
