2014-2015 KSIL
On August 13, 2014 Part II 2014-15 Key Strategic Issues List (KSIL) was released. The purpose of the Key Strategic Issues List is to provide military and civilian researchers a ready reference for issues of special interest to the Department of the Army and the Department of Defense. Make sure to bookmark this link to stay up to date on any changes as other parts will be releasing soon.


SSI Live
You can access our new podcast series "SSI Live" with our own John Deni. A new episode has just been released. The Arab Spring continues to unfold dramatically as seen in Syria (and Iraq) today. From a broad perspective though, what are the lessons learned for U.S. policymakers and what is the regional outlook? How should the U.S. Government, and the Defense Department specifically, adapt policies in order to maintain influence in North Africa and the Middle East? Dr. John R. Deni invited Greg Aftandilian of the Center for National Policy to discuss the latter's chapter on the Arab Spring in the book, "Political and Socio-Economic Change: Revolutions and Their Implications for the U.S. Military." Find this and all other podcasts here and be sure to subscribe.
