Our Mission: To improve global security and stability through nonpartisan research, education, and implementation programs
Our Vision: Innovation for Peace
The Center for Advanced Defense Studies is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization that brings together top-tier academics, national security operators, and local experts from existing and emerging conflict zones around the world to address evolving and nontraditional security challenges. The Center approaches these challenges by describing and predicting the security implications of human behavior and intent.
The Center serves as a platform for Directors, Fellows, Staff, Interns, Sponsors, and Partners to contribute to international security and stability through nonpartisan studies and analysis, basic and applied research, education programs, and consulting opportunities.
