Over the next two weeks part of the ISN’s daily content will look different than normal. Instead of providing our usual Security Watch fare, we’ll be looking back at the international relations and security topics that you found most relevant in 2014. We hope that the materials will provide you with an enlightening look back as we look forward to resuming our normal publications schedule on January 5th. – Best wishes for a happy holiday season, the ISN Staff.
The ISN is a comprehensive, multipart site. If you would like a short introduction on how to navigate it, please watch the following video.
Drones - From Technology to Policy, Security to Ethics
Join us on January 30 for a one-day multidisciplinary conference that will address all things drones – from the latest developments in drone research and their applications to the legal-ethical, humanitarian, security and policy-related consequences of drone use.
Demography and Security Challenges in the 21st Century
Join us on January 20 for a late afternoon presentation by Professor Jack Goldstone on how urbanization, demographic shifts and mass migrations are impacting international order and security. An open Q&A session will follow the presentation.
Are you interested in honing your mediation, conflict transformation and peace promotion skills? If so, you might want to look at the collection of twenty-three ISN Blog articles we’ve put together. Written by the CSS’ Mediation Support Team and their well-known colleagues, the articles cover a variety of important mediation-related topics.
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.
