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's President Jair Bolsonaro, who is running for re-election, is casting doubt on the fairness of the country's electoral processes. Some observers infer that Bosonaro is sowing doubt about the country's election system so that he can ensure his own victory in the country's October election, or dispute the results if he loses. Right-wing Bolsonaro is flailing in the polls against Luiz Ignacio Lula Ignacio da Silva, the leftist former president who served from 2003-2010. Brazil is one of the largest democracies in the world, is the third largest export market for the U.S. in the Western Hemisphere, and is of significant strategic importance.

"Might Jair Bolsonaro Try To Steal Brazil's Election?" - The Economist

"Mr Bolsonaro appears bent on undermining trust in democratic institutions. Before the last election, his supporters energetically spread fake news about his opponents. Since then the pro-Bolsonaro parallel news universe has expanded."
