Security Studies Review
Welcome to the Security Studies Review!
This is a modest initiative to launch a free digital publication / newsletter / blog-space which focuses on various forms of research and analysis studies of security matters (broadly defined). It is to review studies and subsequently share these notes, insights and commentaries. At times, original pieces are published as well.
Please make sure you read the About us page.
In essence, the vision is for The Review to become a publicly available hub for reliable and high-quality reviews of security studies.
All review pieces are freely available, regardless if one is subscribed or not.
Free subscribers have access to nearly all of the resources. Occasionally, members (paid subscribers) receive exclusive access to unique materials.
Membership/paid subscriptions and/or gift donations are first and foremost forms of expressing support.
This initiative was created by, and is managed by, Shahaf Rabi. He (well, I… but you know, keeping writing style consistency here…) was the Founding Director of the Israeli Center for the Study of Targeted Killing at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Previously, he was a Research Fellow at the Initiative for the Study of Asymmetric Conflict & Counterterrorism at UMass Dartmouth, as well as a research assistant intern at the International Institute for Counter Terrorism (ICT).
His prime research interests revolve around the interaction between technology and armed organized groups, learning and innovation of armed organizations, as well as targeted killings and leadership decapitation studies.
He has authored and co-authored several publications, peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed, which appear in Israel Law Review, Terrorism Monitor, and other mediums.
