Researching Ongoing Conflicts

Researching ongoing conflicts requires you to be flexible in what sources you use.  Because of how long it takes to conduct and publish academic research, you may not find as many scholarly sources as you'd like. News sources and websites from reputable organizations can provide insight into ongoing conflicts around the world.

Congressional Research Service (CRS) Reports

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) at the Library of Congress creates analytical, nonpartisan reports on major policy issues for members and committees of the United States Congress. A 2018 law created provisions for CRS reports to be made available to the public as they are published, and efforts will be made to make the backfile available to the public on the CRS website.  For CRS reports published prior to September 2018, there are a variety of organizations and libraries that have made collections available to the public on their own websites.
