About 2/2: Based in Zurich, Switzerland, at the Center for Security Studies CSS at ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich), the ISN’s dedicated team – drawn from various disciplines, including the humanities, the social sciences, and information and communication technology – engage in research projects and education activities, provide news stories and in-depth analyses, and develop technologies for information sharing and for creating and supporting e-learning.

The ISN has close relationships with leading international partner institutes – research institutes, think tanks, and government and non-governmental organizations. The ISN supports its ever-increasing partner network by organizing conferences and seminars, bringing together experts and policy-makers, and fostering the electronic exchange of information.

By cooperating with its partners, the ISN is able to offer its international audience a vast amount of high-quality content through its website. In fact, the ISN provides more online publications, interactive learning content, annotated links, and events than any other comparable service available – free of charge and tailored to the needs of each individual user.

Since it was launched in 1994, the ISN has continually responded to the information needs of its users – it has hundreds of thousands of visitors each month – and has taken advantage of the many opportunities offered by new technologies, while always upholding its autonomy, accountability, and academic integrity. The ISN is jointly funded by the Swiss Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS) and ETH Zurich.

I encourage you to take advantage of our services and to participate actively in the further development of the network.
