North Korea: The Risks of War in the Yellow Sea,  Asia Report N°198   |  23 Dec 2010

The sinking of a South Korean naval vessel and artillery attack against a South Korean island highlight that stability on the peninsula is threatened by more than the nuclear issue.

Cyprus: Bridging the Property Divide,  Europe Report N°210   |  9 Dec 2010

Stability in the Eastern Mediterranean will remain hostage to full settlement of the Cyprus dispute, but the property issue – one of its most intractable knots – can be solved now if Greek and Turkish Cypriots compromise on new proposals currently before them.
