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.

I have for a long time been pessimistic that the overthrow of the current regime in Iran is possible without massive bloodshed because its security forces led by the Revolutionary Guard seemed willing to bash and kill dissenters. This Economist editorial suggests there may be a growing unwillingness to do so when protests are led by women willing to risk death. Good on Iranian women and I can only hope it is true.
