The Security and Defense Network of Latin America (RESDAL) has released the fourth edition of its Comparative Atlas of Defence. The publication, a result of two years of research which features for the first time description and analysis of defence and security realities in the Caribbean region, is now called the Comparative Atlas of Defence in Latin American and the Caribbean.

A general theme for the region is that non-traditional security threats, “notably drugs, crime, and violence [are] dominating the debate among scholars and journalists and commanding the attention of policy makers and security practitioners.” The report is divided into two sections: the first  discusses regional security dynamics; the second is a series of case study chapters outlining security developments in each of the countries of the region. The Atlas is a valuable resource for SSR researchers and practitioners alike.

You can access the document in English and Spanish.
