The three papers offered here provide a detailed analysis of the insurgency and counterinsurgency campaigns being conducted by Islamist rebels against Russia in the North Caucasus. This conflict is Russia¿s primary security threat but has barely registered on Western minds and is hardly reported here. To overcome this neglect, these three papers go into great detail concerning the nature of the Islamist challenge, the Russian response and the implications of this conflict. These papers, in keeping with SSI¿s objectives, also provide a basis for dialogue among U.S., European, and Russian experts dealing with these issues that possesses great potential utility for all parties as they will also continue to be challenged by such wars. It is also important for us to be able to learn from this war as the issues raised by it will not go away, even as we leave Afghanistan.
