Transnational Threats Project
Terror, insurgent, and criminal networks are the focus of the Transnational Threats Project (TNT). Led by Director and Senior Fellow, Thomas Sanderson, TNT assesses these threats and the impact of government responses to them through targeted fieldwork and an extensive network of specialists from government, academia, NGOs, and the private sector. TNT’s work is highly valued by intelligence analysts, policymakers, and leaders seeking to understand, prevent, and thwart transnational threats. TNT regularly briefs major media outlets, NGOs, the public, policymakers, intelligence analysts, warfighters, foreign governments, and corporations.
TNT distinguishes itself with field visits to many of the world’s most violent and contested areas, engaging a full spectrum of sources including violent extremists, security services, journalists, activists, clergy, diplomats, traffickers, scholars, business people, NGOs, UN officials, and refugees. Insights and analysis from these engagements offer TNT’s audiences unique perspectives from hard to access regions and communities with direct bearing on the security of the United States and its partners and allies.
