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 recent prevalence of ‘gray zone’ conflicts and why they will become more frequent and complex in the future; the measured return of military conscription; what the African Peace and Security Architecture can teach Europe about developing security structures; what’s needed to reshape the US military; and the role of nuclear blackmail in the use of hard power. Then, in our second SW series, we look at the deteriorating security situation in Donbas Oblast; the potential role of safe zones in Syria; the form and substance of economic sanctions; the notion of ‘autism’ in foreign policy; and the ‘sovereign obligations’ we have in World Order 2.0.
