Terrorism and Intelligence

Our work on terrorism and intelligence includes analysis of conflict zones (such as Afghanistan, Iraq, the Sahel and Maghreb, Syria, and Yemen); emerging threats (new actors/tactics/weapons); partners (international experience and lessons learned); radicalization (process and countermeasures including the role of social media); and US strategy and policy (such as from the standpoint of defense, diplomacy, and information sharing).
