The Center for Maritime Strategy & Security (CMSS) is continental Europe'sleading provider of topical knowledge on global maritime security issues. With the Kiel Seapower Series we have established a forum that brings together international thought leaders to discuss the most pressing security challenges the maritime community faces today. The CMSS serves as a nexus for the maritime academic community and aims to support and encourage young scholars to offer new insights, fresh ideas, and novel approaches on how to tackle the maritime questions of tomorrow. We are regular contributors to the international naval and security policy discourse, to national and international conferences and publish frequently monographs, edited volumes, articles and commentaries.
