ISW Impact Highlights January-February 2017

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) entered its 10th Anniversary year empowered by its unique role within the U.S. national security community. America confronts a growing and increasingly complex set of threats and challenges abroad while managing a government transition at home. This environment has already generated important opportunities that ISW has seized. ISW remains dedicated to and positioned for advancing an informed understanding of military affairs among decision-makers and the public through reliable research, trusted analysis, and innovative education. So far in 2017, the ISW team has delivered critical insights, informed the ongoing debate over the direction of U.S. national security policy, enhanced its education of the next generation of security leaders, and harnessed the power of its analytical innovation.
