Engaging in non-partisan and thoughtful research has been a cornerstone to the work at ACDIS.ACDIS pursues interdisciplinary research initiatives through developing grant proposals, collaborating with faculty and students, administering grant projects, and publishing reports.
Please see publications and reports from previous research completed by ACDIS and ACDIS Faculty.
Current on-going research projects at ACDIS include:
ACDIS invites faculty and students to submit research reports, occasional papers, policy briefs, and commentary posts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research Reports contain material that has already been published or submitted for publication, sometimes with additional background material that cannot be included in a single published document due to publishers’ length restrictions.
Occasional Papers often contain material that is of interest but not in a format suitable for submission in whole or part in a published journal or book format.
Swords and Ploughshares
The academic journal Swords and Ploughshares will be available in our archives shortly.
Policy Briefs are concise, informative pieces that analyze pressing security issues and offer policy implications and recommendations.
ACDIS is in the process of moving over documents from the old website. Current archived papers are available at the University of Illinois IDEALS website here or you can select which type of document you are looking for below.
