Top 10 Posts for August 2012September 6, 2012 By Schuyler Null
August is a slow month in DC, but not so on New Security Beat: 8 of the top 10 last month (measured by unique pageviews) were new posts. Laurie Mazur’s discussion of inequality, population, and sustainability took the top spot followed by a look at what’s new in the Population Reference Bureau’s latest data sheet; Kate Diamond’s feature on Mongolia’s climate and development challenges; a discussion on the naming of the Failed States Index; a summary of the National Intelligence Council’s extensive series on aging; and two reactions to Iran’s surprising shift on family planning.
We also, unfortunately, bade good bye to our director and the face of ECSP for so many years, Geoff Dabelko. Although he’ll stay involved in a consulting role, please feel free to let him know he’ll be missed in the comments on his post.
