International Relations and Security Network
Run by the Center of Security Studies at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland
(A Swiss Contribution to Partnership of Peace)

Cold war breakdown
Parallel to the end of the Cold War and the breakdown of political barriers between East and West, the Internet has opened up new opportunities for interactive work across political and institutional borders. The new challenges presented by the information revolution demand knowledge, competence and ethical awareness of the international security community.

Network around the globe
The International Relations and Security Network ISN is a unique instrument. Numerous research institutes and international organizations, and hundreds of professionals working in the security community linked and supported by the ISN, create knowledge and facilitate information exchange, dialogue and cooperation. They and the ISN are part of a vast network of cooperative relations that reaches around the globe.

IT integration in Security
With a total of 30 professional staff members and 70 partner organizations worldwide, the ISN works to integrate information technology with the international security community. The ISN has established and continues to maintain relationships with numerous research institutes and international governmental and non-governmental organizations.
