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.

For those of you who follow civil affairs - or just want to know more about CA and what is going on with it, you can peruse the many articles, reports, and papers posted on the Civil Affairs Association website. For more, take a look at the online Civil Affairs Journal at: https://www.civilaffairsassoc.org/ca-journal. I've attached two of the more important publications reflecting this year's discussion of "Optimizing Civil Affairs" - the 2018-19 Civil Affairs Issue Papers and the 2019 Roundtable Report. More soon. CJH
