SSI books and monographs by Dr. Andrew Monaghan

  • Strategic Implications of the Evolving Shanghai Cooperation Organization

    August 06, 2014

    Authored by Henry Plater-Zyberk, Dr. Andrew Monaghan.
    View the Executive Summary

    The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has the potential to obstruct U.S. policy aims in Central Asia, but also to facilitate them. However, both of these potentials are imperfectly understood. This monograph explains the SCO, and its real implications for U.S. policy toward both Central Asia and the SCO’s dominant partners, Russia and China.

  • European Missile Defense and Russia

    July 17, 2014

    Authored by Keir Giles, Dr. Andrew Monaghan.
    View the Executive Summary

    Strong Russian opposition to U.S. plans for ballistic missile defense (BMD) in Europe is likely to intensify further through 2015-16 as Phase III of the European Phased Adaptive Approach is implemented. This monograph examines a number of fundamental reasons—some valid, some spurious—why Russia is alarmed at U.S. BMD plans, and provides recommendations for managing the missile defense dialogue with Russia in the future in order to mitigate potentially damaging responses.

  • Legality in Cyberspace: An Adversary View

    March 11, 2014

    Authored by Keir Giles, Dr. Andrew Monaghan.
    View the Executive Summary

    The United States and its allies are in general agreement on the legal status of conflict in cyberspace. But other key cyber actors have radically different ideas on key concepts of cyber warfare, including when a state of war exists. This paper explores the Russian approach to legal constraints governing actions in cyberspace, in order to assist in formulating an effective response to Russian cyber initiatives.
