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 nonstate 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.
