At ISDC, we publish the findings of our research to make them accessible to the academic and policy communities and the general public. Many of our papers are first published as working papers in series such as those of HiCN or IZA before being published by peer-reviewed journals. We also edited several volumes on our core interests in security and development.

ISDC also contributed to the collection of the ‘Life in Kyrgyzstan Study‘ panel data, which can be downloaded for research purposes here.
