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.

Six months after Myanmar's coup, the country's military leader has declared himself to be prime minister and is promising to hold free and fair elections in about two years. Until then the country is to be ruled by the military under a, extended state of emergency. It is highly ironic that the architects of a military coup that resulted in the arrests of hundreds of democratically elected government officials are promising free and fair elections. In the meantime the country's human rights situation is abysmal and the covid-19 pandemic is raging.
