This week, our hard power-centered Security Watch (SW) series focuses on the increasingly vulnerable INF Treaty; the impact of Morocco’s current counterterrorism strategy on the Western Sahara; the dangers of offshore balancing; the role of operational partnerships in UN peacekeeping; and the role of human domain mapping in 21st century warfare. Then, in our second, more wide-ranging SW series, we look at how authoritarian regimes establish their legitimacy; whether the recent migration flows to Europe are ‘the new normal’; what internal political limitations are propelling North Korea’s latest round of ‘bad boy’ behavior; why no-fly zones or “IS-free zones” will work in Syria; and why Venezuela is indeed an “unnatural disaster.”
The ISN is a comprehensive, multipart site. If you would like a short introduction on how to navigate it, please watch the following video.
The ISN Personal Dossiers
If you are a teacher, researcher, student or someone who just finds it useful to bundle international relations (IR) and security-related materials together, the ISN has created a free tool that you can use to build personal dossiers.
