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.

On July 25 Guatemala will hold elections for president, vice president, congressional deputies, and mayors. As the country is experiencing widespread poverty, crime, inequality, corruption, and political intrigue, the Guatemalan public is largely pessimistic about the country's future and eager to replace incumbent president Alejandro Giammattei, who is not eligible for reelection. Instability, violence, climate change, and other stressors in Guatemala directly affect high rates of irregular migration to the United States.
