A "pocket CIA" at the Brookings Institution

17 mars 2013

The Brookings Institution announced this week the establishment of the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence (21CSI). The new center will focus on defense, cybersecurity, arms control and intelligence issues

The Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence will be housed in the Foreign Policy program at Brookings and Peter W. Singer will serve as its founding director.

The center will encompass four key focal points of policy research on security and defense issues :

  • The Defense Policy team will be led by Michael O’Hanlon
  • The new Intelligence Project, focusing on the nexus of intelligence and policymaking, will be led by Senior Fellow Bruce Riedel. The Intelligence Project is the first of its kind to be established at a major research institution.
  • The Arms Control Initiative will combine a focus on existing challenges of nuclear and conventional disarmament with new policy research on the Iranian and North Korean challenges to the nuclear nonproliferation regime and led by Senior Fellow Steven Pifer
  • The new Cybersecurity project will bring together the work of Visiting Fellow Ian Wallace, a former senior official at the British Ministry of Defence
