An agency of the EU

Publications 


As part of its mission to find a common security culture for the EU, to help develop and project the CFSP, and to enrich Europe’s strategic debate, the Institute regularly releases publications on the topics and regions at the core of its work. 

The Institute’s flagship publication is its series of Chaillot Papers, which are based on focused, in-depth research. The Institute also publishes a Yearbook (YES), Reports, and shorter Briefs and Alerts

  • US defence after the mid-term elections

    Alert - No50 - 28 November 2014

    Jan Joel Andersson

    This Alert looks at the implications of the recent Republican victory in the US mid-term elections for the country’s defence policies. How will this affect the current administration? And what changes could we witness overseas?

  • Gender in conflict

    Brief - No33 - 27 November 2014

    Christian Dietrich, Clodagh Quain

    This Brief explores the various dimensions of women in conflict. Beyond the prevailing narratives that tend to portray women primarily as victims – and men as perpetrators – they can also actively engage in civilian life, partake in combat, and help pave the road to peace.

  • Countering Boko Haram

    Alert - No49 - 21 November 2014

    Cristina Barrios

    This Alert traces the history and anatomy of the terrorist group, and calls for a broader approach to counter Boko Haram: disenfranchisement in the north and corruption in the institutions (notably the army) are Nigeria's biggest challenges.

  • Afghanistan: charting a new path

    Alert - No48 - 21 November 2014

    Eva Gross

    With a new national unity government headed by President Ashraf Ghani in place in Kabul, this Alert looks at the prospects for the country in a changing political and security environment that is likely to be marked by greater activism on the part of the Afghanistan’s neighbours in the future.
