What is DESIP?

The purpose of DESIP is to emphasize the connection between rising population pressures, environmental degradation and political and violent conflict. DESIP presents a snapshot of the world’s wars and trouble spots in 1996. Some information is updated through its links, through addenda which have given way in the wake of 9/11 to Bill Weinberg’s weekly WW4 Reports, and through information in its FOCUS sections.

DESIP provides information and analysis in its FOCUS sections of the Middle East conflict as well as information on population, security and immigration issues. DESIP also offers, in association with Amazon.com, an opportunity to order relevant books on many of these issues. (Purchasing books on Amazon.com through the DESIP website will help defray some of the costs of maintaining DESIP.) DESIP also hosts the site of the International Society of Malthus.
