Increasing globalization has led to new and emerging transnational threats to U.S. and international security. Accordingly, U.S. foreign policy approaches increasingly rely on informed decision-making. Recognizing the interplay across policymakers, government officials, defense actors, and international organizations is instrumental to understanding of how transnational threats are addressed by way of security strategies and foreign policy tactics. Our scholarly expertise covers a vast range of research that includes congressional relations and national security strategy development, negotiations and peace processes on the frontlines of conflict, and civil-military relationships in defense policy development.
