The Center for Political-Military Analysis seeks to employ an integrated analysis of how developments relating to diplomacy, politics, economics, energy, military affairs, and other major forces are shaping 21st century international affairs. It analyzes the critical variables that shape international politics and considers the potential impact of nonlinear forces or wildcards that might radically alter outcomes. Ultimately, the Center seeks to understand the dynamics that could influence the behavior of key global actors as well as identify challenges and opportunities that could result from these interactions.
AREAS OF SPECIAL INTEREST

Project on National Security Reform (PNSR)
Project Directors: Richard Weitz
This multi-year, multi-institutional project examines the U.S. national security system to identify needed reforms. The PNSR, which involves a dozen think tank heads as well as former senior government policy makers, has five tasks: (1) examine how the national security system took its current form; (2) identify problems, their causes, and their consequences; (3) develop a range of alternative solutions; (4) evaluate the alternative solutions; and (5) make recommendations. Weitz is leading the case study working group responsible for producing approximately 100 case studies to identify causes of recurring strengths and weaknesses in formulating and implementing policies in order to generate recommendations for enhancing US government performance. PNSR is publishing several books of the best case studies.
