In response to the crisis in Ukraine, NATO's recent summit in Newport marked the suprising return to a traditional agenda of reassurance and deterrence. The ICCS and POLSIS are hosting a panel discussion on Thursday 20th November to discuss these latest developments.

The ICCS blog was established to showcase our cutting-edge research, and to invoke discussion and reflection on conceptual ideas related to security and the challenges of global cooperation.
