The Xenophon Paper Series was launched to publish comprehensive policy-oriented studies, considering the lack of such policy papers on the Black Sea region.

The ICBSS feels that there is the need for a special circular on developments in and around the Black Sea region that goes beyond the mere news brief format. Therefore the Centre has set up an electronic review focused particularly on the Black Sea region, aiming to provide stakeholders and other interested parties around the globe with an exclusive information service. The Monitor offers brief commentaries and refers key documents, publications and events of interest that impact on the wider Black Sea region.
