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 International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin for war crimes related to the abduction of thousands of children from Ukraine and their removal to Russia. The most immediate implication is that Putin will be unable to travel to ICC member states without risk of being arrested. Russia does not recognize the ICC, so Putin would not face arrest there. The ICC also issued a warrant for the arrest of Maria Lvova-Belova, the commissioner for Children’s Rights in the Office of the President of the Russian Federation, for her involvement in the abductions.

Some excellent analysis of the implications of this indictment has come out since the arrest warrants were issued. Take a look:
