Publications

The Perry Center publishes original works by faculty, staff, alumni, and international colleagues through a variety of print and digital outlets. The current lineup of publications includes Regional Insights, occasional papers, as well as special reports and books.

We welcome submissions in English, Spanish, and Portuguese for any of the publication types.

For archived articles published by the Perry Center not found on our web site, please visit our Digital Library Collection.

The Perry Center publishes an annual report and an interactive Alumni Spotlight every year. These publications cover the educational programs, outreach activities, and achievements of the Center and its graduates that occurred throughout the fiscal year. These reports serve as a foundational primer on who we are, what we do, and the impact we have in the Western Hemisphere.

Occasional Papers are stand-alone publications that cover a broad range of topics and showcase a new perspective, insight, or analysis of a historical theme or current event.

Publication description forthcoming.

Regional Insights offer a brief analysis of regional events, trends, or themes, tying events in one country of government to their broader regional implications.

The Security and Defense Studies Review journal (SDSR) is the Perry Center’s flagship publication. The SDSR contains articles on a diverse range of timely topics: international security, Western Hemisphere affairs, country-specific studies, and perspectives on regional history. Each issue contains an assortment of scholarly articles, commentaries from top policymakers and security practitioners, and book reviews of works of interest to the Perry Center community.

Perspectivas is a digital publication that contains an array of articles, commentaries, and policy statements in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Perspectivas thrives on the diversity of “perspectives” that make up the defense and security community of interest. Valuable insights from Perry Center alumni, high-level government leaders, members of academia, and journalists serve as the foundation of each issue.

In addition to the Perry Center’s regular publications, such as the Occasional Papers and Regional Insights, the Center also publishes one-off pieces. These items are located here.

In addition to writing for the Perry Center, our faculty and staff are also featured in other institutions’ publications. A selection of these pieces are available here.

This Week is a one-page publication that highlights the achievements of our alums. These achievements are also included in our biannual publication Alumni Spotlghts. This Week is only offered in English.
