The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) is the world's leading authority on political-military conflicts. Updated by the IISS Transnational Threats and Political Risk Programme, the ACD is the organization's flagship online resource.
Students of Military/Strategic Studies and International Relations, in particular, will benefit from this objective and user-friendly source of information on more than seventy global armed conflicts, including terrorist activities.
How will students and researchers benefit from the ACD?
The answer is simple. No other online resource can boast authoritative and easily-accessed content direct from the IISS. Some of the key features of the ACD include:
maps, statistics and reports that are updated on a regular basis by area specialists
fast access to conflict summaries and other data, broken down by country and region
the ability to create bar graphs and charts of specific data on conflicts dating back to 1997
an interactive service through which subscribers can get access to ACD experts on various conflict issues.
