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.

Register for the 2019 Civil Affairs Symposium!

Civil Affairs Association

The Civil Affairs Regiment will discuss “Integrating Civil Affairs” at the Civil Affairs Symposium, Friday and Saturday, 18-19 October 2019 at the Hilton Downtown Tamp in Tampa, Florida.


Civil affairs integration surfaced as the forefront issue for the future development of the Regiment at the conclusion of the last Roundtable. In order for civil affairs to become a better Army and Joint force for integration across multiple domains and the human geography, however, the Regiment must first better integrate itself – then with those it works for, by, with, and through.


The Symposium will begin with three workshops and a banquet dinner that Friday, then address the questions laid out in the call for papers, due to the Issue Papers Committee by no later than the close of business Friday, 30 August 2019.
