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.

Nigeria is holding presidential primary elections this weekend in anticipation of presidential elections to be held in 2023. President Muhammadu Buhari is not allowed to seek office again in 2023 as he is currently serving his second four-year term. Nigeria is not only the continent's most populous country with a population of over 200 million, it is also Africa's largest economy. It has been ravaged by conflict with Islamist militant group Boko Haram and faces a number of other economic, political, security, and social challenges. The stability of Nigeria is paramount to the region and indeed to the world, so this is an election to watch.
