Connections vol.16, no.3, Summer 2017

The Summer 2017 issue of Connections presents original research in the role of strategic communication, or StratCom, in shaping the image of a security sector organization with examples from the experience of the US and Ukraine, lessons learned from the decades long conflict in Western Sahara, and the interplay of NATO and Russia's interests in the South Caucasus. Two articles address OSCE from different angles - the challenges in enforcing compliance to arms control arrangements and as governance norms transfer fora. The final article examines the modalities of the British position vis-a-vis EU's Common Security and Defense Policy.
