About the International Security Program

ISP tackles one of the most robust and ambitious research agendas in the field. It covers conventional political-military issues, including defense strategy and policy, acquisition and industry, counterterrorism and homeland security, U.S. nuclear policy, WMD proliferation, defense budget analysis, missile defense, strategic futures, and security cooperation. ISP is also committed to addressing a growing range of nonmilitary issues defining U.S. foreign and security policy.

Nonpartisan/bipartisan analysis of the ongoing defense and security challenges facing the nation provides Congress, the Executive branch, and industry the information needed to make tough decisions. ISP assembles top-level leaders and provides the platform for them to define critical issues and explain the impact nationally and globally.
