The New Lines Institute for Strategy and Policy is a nonpartisan think tank in Washington D.C., working to enhance U.S. foreign policy based on a deep understanding of the geopolitics of the different regions of the world and their value systems.
In the recent past, we have witnessed extraordinary feats of human courage, dashed revolutionary hopes, genocide, war, and the largest refugee crisis since World War II. We believe that conventional wisdom and policy advice, based on abstraction, ideology, and superficial understanding of other regions, has not served our policymakers well.
As political, territorial, and philosophical “lines” shift, so must our approach to grappling with them and developing new lines of thinking.
The Institute was founded in 2019 by Dr. Ahmed Alwani, who serves as its president.
