The Project on NATO Sea Power

The project on NATO Sea Power seeks to better understand the geopolitical factors impacting NATO member nations and their navies as they operate in different littoral regions around the globe. Specifically, this pertains to Russian, Chinese, and Iranian actions taken against US Foreign Policy objectives in the following regions: Baltic Sea, Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Strait of Hormuz, and proposed enlargements/partnerships in the Arctic and Pacific. Our research will analyze the future threat landscape to NATO in these regions both individually and in consideration of NATO as a whole. Through this detailed review, the Project on NATO Sea Power will explore what the current administration is doing to achieve its stated objectives, assess what impact it has on deterrence of global conflict, and examine policy to further support American values in defense of the nation.

The Project on Great Powers Modernization

The Project on Great Powers Modernization examines efforts of friendly and rivaling nations as it pertains to US: Cyber Security, Infrastructure, and the Defense Industrial Base. The project seeks to create a better understanding of the threats posed to US Foreign Policy goals by autocratic regimes that use the free market to improve their own national security – to the detriment of democratic principals in the free world. By examining powerful regimes across the planet and how they each impact the daily lives of people, as well as entire countries, the Project on Great Power Modernization will reveal how seemingly mundane business practices, inventions, and actions of rival nations can have an adverse effect on the United State’s geopolitical standing in the world.
