Human Security

The Human Security unit places the safety and dignity of people at the center of policy analysis. It focuses on threats emanating from non-state actors, geopolitical vacuums, and authoritarianism. We believe the U.S. national interest is best served by building on the overlap between U.S. strategic priorities and the well-being and security of populations.

Our analysis and policy recommendations therefore focus heavily on local context and geopolitics rather than on foreign policy ideology or abstractions.
