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.

The U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit is underway in Washington and is bringing together African heads of state, senior U.S. government officials, and representatives from the private sector and civil society. Participants will discuss a wide range of topics including security, economic, and social issues affecting the continent. The summit takes place against a backdrop of concern in recent years about growing Chinese and Russian influence on the continent.
