Georgetown Security Studies Review

Georgetown Security Studies Review (GSSR) is the official academic review of Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies. Our mission is to contribute to security policy debates by exposing both specialists and general interest readers to a wide array of perspectives on both current and historical international affairs issues. In addition to full-length peer-reviewed articles, issues of GSSR feature literature reviews, letters to the editors, and op-ed pieces.

"China will inevitably be affected by the humanitarian costs of a collapsed DPRK, the security of DPRK’s nuclear material, and any large US-ROK force mobilization."

“Any ethically acceptable end to a violent conflict must strike a balance between peace and justice. For the U.S. strategy in Syria, this is incredibly complicated, but necessary.”

"If the United States wishes to maintain its place as a world leader and wisely secure its own interests, it must stay decisively engaged in Africa."
