IPA’s Global Strategy Group (GSG) is a team of former officers from the U.S. Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, Commerce, Justice, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the FBI, and the private sector. They are a team of experts in foreign affairs, global security, interagency and intergovernmental cooperation. Emphasizing a comprehensive, whole-of-government approach, the GSG provides solutions by designing, planning and executing scenario-supported wargames and experiments addressing complex emerging security challenges.

The GSG has produced and delivered numerous reports and handbooks on best practices for civil-military, interagency, and host-country cooperation. The topics range from conflict prevention and mitigation to post-conflict stabilization and reconstruction. The team has also provided extensive support to NATO in moving toward the implementation of the Alliance’s Strategic Concept.

One noteworthy announcement to come out of last week's NATO summit in Madrid was that the U.S. will significantly boost its force posture in Europe. The U.S. for the first time will establish a permanent command structure in Poland, along NATO's eastern flank. The U.S. will also increase rotations of troops through other eastern European countries and is moving additional materiel to and within Europe.

"Biden said Putin thought NATO members would splinter after he invaded Ukraine, but got the opposite response instead. 'Putin was looking for the Finland-ization of Europe,' Biden said. 'You’re gonna get the NATO-ization of Europe. And that’s exactly what he didn’t want, but exactly what needs to be done to guarantee security for Europe.'"
