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.

This week Public Radio International's The World re-aired a 5-part radio series called "How Wars End." These brief programs are a fascinating review of history as they discuss Iraq, the American Civil War, World War I, and the Gulf War. They also provide timely considerations regarding the end of the war in Afghanistan one year ago and regarding an eventual end to Russia's war in Ukraine. These are well worth a listen.
