Human Security Report Project

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

This month, the Human Security Report Project (HSRP) was profiled in the Internet Scout Report (ISR). As many of you will already know, this project is based at the School For International Studies here at SFU.  Here’s the report on this project from the ISR:

Human Security Report Project

http://www.hsrgroup.org/

The Human Security Report Project (HSRP) is based at Simon Fraser University in Canada, and it ‘conducts research on global and regional trends in political violence, their causes and consequences and presents its findings in a manner that is accessible to the policy and research communities, the media, educators and the interested public.’ The ‘About’ section states that the e-resources it provides through its website has effectively changed the way human security issues are understood and managed. The ‘Publications’ link on the left hand side menu provides access to the ‘Human Security Brief’ for 2005-2007, as well as to ‘Articles’, ‘Books’, ‘Book Chapters’, ‘Workshop Reports’ and ‘Opinion Pieces’. The categories of data used in the HSRP are fleshed out in the ‘Data Resources’ link on the left hand side of the page. The categories of data used are ‘Armed Conflict’, ‘Deadly Assault on Civilians’, ‘Terrorism’, and ‘Other Human Security Indicators’. The nine ‘Research Initiatives’ of the HSRP can be accessed on the right hand side menu.” [KMG]

IDEAS: Diplomacy and Strategy website

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

From the Internet Scout Report this week, here’s a great web resource for anyone interested in international affairs and diplomacy:

IDEAS: Diplomacy and Strategy @ LSE

http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/IDEAS/

Housed at the London School of Economics and Political Science, the IDEAS center is dedicated to using the School’s ‘unique resources for understanding international events in order to develop research and training programmes that can help us recognize how today’s world came into being and how it may be changed.’Ê For persons interested in international affairs and policy, this site will be a delightful treat, and visitors can meander through their weblog, ‘Who’s who’ area, and calendar of events. The ‘IDEAS Reports‘ section is an area that should not be missed, and users can read and download top-notch reports such as ‘Prospects for Reform? The Iranian Elections’ and ‘Afghanistan: Now You See Me?’ The site is rounded out by the ‘Programmes’ area which describes IDEAS’ current research on the Cold War, Latin America, and the Balkans.”

IDEAS is also home to two academic journals that can be accessed online through the SFU Library: Cold War History and International Politics.
