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, and the newly created Proceedings, as well as special reports and books.

We welcome submissions in English and Spanish for any of the publication types. We also feature the work of our faculty and staff published by external entities.

The Perry Center publishes an annual report and an interactive Alumni Spotlight every year. These, along with other quarterly 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.

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

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.

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.

1325 Stories collects essays on women, peace, and security in the Western Hemisphere. It is a way for the Perry Center to continue to engage on this topic following the publication of "Twenty Years, Twenty Stories" in October 2020. The series welcomes submissions from people working in defense and security across the region.

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.

The Perry Center produces a written record called Proceedings, prepared without attribution due to Chatham House Rules, of its major multilateral seminars, in the form of a 10+ page summary of the presentations and discussions.  They are available electronically here, and a printed version may be available by request (limited quantities).

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.
