2014-2015 KSIL
On October 31, 2014 Parts I and III of the 2014-15 Key Strategic Issues List (KSIL) were updated. 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. With the APEC summit in Beijing this week, it seemed the perfect time to discuss Chinese foreign policy. Dr. John R. Deni sat down with Dr. R. Evan Ellis, one of the newest members of the SSI staff, to discuss Ellis's recently published book, China on the Ground in Latin America: Challenges for the Chinese and Impacts on the Region. How and where is China engaging in Latin America? Will China displace the United States as the hemispheric hegemon? What are the short- and long-term implications, including those affecting DoD, of Chinese engagement there? Find this and all other podcasts here and be sure to subscribe.

SSI Has Gone Digital
In order to leverage advancing technology more efficiently and to continue to provide insightful and provocative research and analysis to the national security community while concurrently reducing costs, beginning on March 1, 2014, all SSI and USAWC Press Letort Papers were published in a digital format only. Additionally, on October 1, 2014, all SSI and USAWC Press publications, to include books and monographs, will now only be published in a digital format. Hard copies will still be able to be purchased for a small free from the Government Printing Office (GPO).
