Sad news: the Afghanistan Conflict Monitor and its sister publication the Pakistan Conflict Monitor have ceased publication. A note from the publishers - the Simon Fraser University-funded Human Security Report Project in Vancouver, Canada - says "As a result of staffing constraints, changes in media reporting on Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a shift in our strategic priorities, we have decided to discontinue the Afghanistan and Pakistan Conflict Monitors. As a consequence, we will no longer be producing the Daily Briefing, or updating the websites.
"Instead of continuing to feature news stories, which are increasingly well covered by other online news media like Foreign Policy's “AfPak Channel,” we will be focussing on more in-depth research and policy material from governments, researchers, and major NGOs. These resources can be found on our research portal, the Human Security Gateway."
