The ISN looks south to start the new year: South America that is. Our theme this week, South America’s Power Puzzle, examines the geopolitical, ideological and security issues the continent is tackling. We start with Markus Schultze-Kraft’s Tackling the Andean Security Dilemma, in which he focuses on the challenges the Andean states face and explains why they shouldn’t bear the task alone.
