The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization located in Washington, DC. CSIS provides strategic insights and solutions to decisionmakers, and relies upon your support to help our world navigate toward a more secure and prosperous future.

Ideas matter. Stability and prosperity are not natural conditions, but the results of sound policies and more effective government institutions.

Our mission at CSIS is to promote and generate those superior ideas so that decisionmakers will create better policy and smarter government institutions.

Since 1962, CSIS has been a tremendous source of thoughtful, innovative, and balanced solutions to the most complex foreign policy and national security challenges of our time.

Our staff of more than 240 full-time employees, large network of affiliated scholars, and world-class Board of Trustees share a common purpose to build a better, safer, more prosperous world.

Our work would not be possible without the support we receive from individuals, private foundations, corporations, and government agencies. We invite you to support CSIS as we help our world navigate toward a more peaceful and secure future.
