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.

Brazil will hold presidential elections in October, and incumbent right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro faces a significant challenge from leftist former president Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva. Bolsonaro has expressed doubt about the integrity of Brazil's electronic voting system, drawing concerns that he might interfere with the election process and/or refuse to comply with the outcome if he loses.
