  • The Importance of the New START Treaty

    • Pranay Vaddi
    • December 04, 2019
    • House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee

    New START’s expiration will undermine U.S. security by removing all limits on Russia’s modernizing nuclear arsenal, by reducing our visibility into that arsenal. Extending New START will not create any new problems; the Treaty will continue to support U.S. national security goals

  • The Conflict in Libya

    • Frederic Wehrey
    • May 15, 2019
    • Testimony before the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee

    The current crisis is Libya’s worst in half a decade and, potentially, since the 2011 revolution. Unless swift action is taken to end the clashes and return to a political process, the damage may be irreparable.

  • On China’s Expanding Influence in Europe and Eurasia

    • Philippe Le Corre
    • May 09, 2019
    • Testimony before the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee

    Europe has started re-evaluating its policies with respect to the China challenge.

  • Assessing the Role of the United States in the World

    The United States is no longer the only big kid on the geopolitical block, but has an opportunity to lock in its role as the world’s pivotal power–still with a better hand to play than any of its rivals.

  • An Inquiry Into the NPT and Nuclear Disarmament

    The overall risk of nuclear use is still very low. However, at least two factors are making that risk greater: growing nuclear competition among the United States, Russia, and China, and the risk of nuclear use by nuclear newcomer states.

  • Global Britain and India

    • Rudra Chaudhuri
    • November 27, 2018
    • UK House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee

    As the United Kingdom seeks to bolster its trade with Australia, China, Japan, and India, the importance of sea lines of communications across the Indian ocean will grow and this will increase the strategic logic for the U.K. to have a naval presence in the region.

  • Egypt: Security, Human Rights, and Reform

    What the U.S. government, and particularly Congress, can do is scrutinize engagement with and assistance to Egypt in order to ensure that they promote stability for the nation rather than one man rule.

  • Security, Human Rights, and Reform in Egypt

    Egypt is on a dangerous course, one with grave implications for the United States. It will be difficult to reverse this trajectory, but Congress has an important opportunity to help the Trump administration tackle this thorny challenge by restoring U.S. credibility and influence with Egypt.

  • On Chinese Investment and Influence in Europe

    Although the United States and the EU do not always speak with one voice, they should coordinate and present a united front as Chinese capital continues to flow towards the European continent.

  • Libya Fractured: The Struggle for Unity

    It is true that Libya is often overshadowed by a host of other crises and challenges that demand America’s attention. But the country remains a place of great potential and resilience, and it affects U.S. and European interests beyond the threat of terrorism.

  • EU Policy Options in Case of U.S. Withdrawal From the Iran Nuclear Deal

    Brussels should compartmentalise its approach to Washington: Finding possible agreements over shared concerns while staunchly defending the Iran nuclear deal itself.

  • China’s Relations with U.S. Allies and Partners in Europe

    • Erik Brattberg
    • April 05, 2018
    • U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission

    As Europe takes its own steps to scrutinize Chinese economic practices more closely, there is now significant potential for greater transatlantic dialogue and cooperation on China.

  • Egypt: Human Rights, Seven Years After the Revolution

    • Michele Dunne
    • December 06, 2017
    • Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission of the United States Congress

    The argument that is often made against active engagement on human rights issues in Egypt is that no matter what the United States does, the situation will not improve. This is not true.

  • Confronting the Full Range of Iranian Threats

    • Jake Sullivan
    • October 11, 2017
    • U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs

    The smart way to proceed would be to keep the world’s powers united and the burden of proof on Iran.

  • Securing the Peace After the Fall of ISIL

    • Marc Lynch
    • October 03, 2017
    • House Committee on Armed Services

    Planning for the future of Iraq after ISIS will be essential to consolidating coalition successes and avoiding yet another recurrence of insurgency and state failure.

  • Protecting American Primacy in the Indo-Pacific

    Because the Indo-Pacific region promises to become the new center of gravity in global politics, its security problems intimately affect the safety, prosperity, and international position of the United States, as well as the wellbeing of its allies.

  • The United States’ Assistance for Egypt

    • Michele Dunne
    • April 25, 2017
    • U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs

    With a new U.S. administration in office that is reexamining foreign assistance priorities overall, there is an opportunity to take assistance to Egypt off auto-pilot and design an approach that better serves the interests of the United States and of Egypt—the nation broadly, not only the military

  • The Crisis in Libya: Next Steps and U.S. Policy Options

    Having expended considerable military effort in helping Libyan forces wrest territory from the Islamic State last year, the United States should now turn its diplomatic attention to ensuring the country does not slip into greater chaos.

  • Russian Active Measures and Influence Campaigns

    • Eugene Rumer
    • March 30, 2017
    • U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
