The CASI committee has recently discussed the idea of creating a list of '24 hours of reading'. Basically this would be a follow up to the 'guide to sanctions', currently on the website, and would consist of about 24 'units' of reading. Initially, the list would just appear online and all documents would be referenced with appropiate web addresses. We have currently come up with what we think is a reasonably comprehensive list, but it could do with further input - any suggestions for articles that would be appropiate, or comments on the pieces that we already have. The current list (which is still a bit of a mess) is below (if anybody wants it in word format please email me), and I'm looking forward to hearing what people think. Thanks!
