    Mark Fitzpatrick: Who is first in North Korea, and what’s this about ‘no first use’?

    13 October 2014.  The wait for Kim Jong-un is on day 40. It’s been that long now since his last public appearance on 3 September, watching a concert with his wife and senior officials.

    Antoine Levesques: A rocky road to the border for Xi and Modi

    02 October 2014.  By Antoine Levesques, Research Associate for South Asia The border dispute between Asia’s two giant neighbours imposed itself on the agenda of the recent Xi–Modi summit devoted to trade and economics. But with time on their side and plenty of political capital at home, they can take new steps to manage their increasing assertiveness in the Himalayas without upsetting their delicate balance of rivalry and cooperation. Xi Jinping’s 17–19 September...

    08 August 2014.  China’s recent economic rise has generated widespread predictions of an inevitable conflict with the United States. But, IISS Council Member Lieutenant-General Karl Eikenberry argues in a recent article for American Review  that while there’s a long history of conflict between established and emerging powers, China and the United Sates are not necessarily fated to repeat the pattern today.
