F rom late 2015 onward we have decided to fully focus our work for and with partner organisations: technical assistance, project development and academic research. Unfortunately this means that we no longer dedicate our time to website commentary and publications. However, our team members do still regularly publish on other platforms, such as newspapers, books and other websites.

Below you can find a list of many of our web-publications from the past.

Please note that ReSeT has no ideological agenda beyond expanding the understanding of global affairs and stimulating debate on these issues. Therefore, the views expressed in the articles below are those of the author(s), and not necessarily shared by the whole team. Any factual errors or objectively verifiable mistakes certainly do fall under ReSeT’s responsibility. If you find any, please let us know and the publication in question will be corrected. Also note that not all our work is publicly available.
