Center for Strategic and Diplomatic Studies

The Center for Strategic & Diplomatic Studies (CSDS) conducts cutting-edge research on global and national security issues and develops academic programs dealing with diplomacy, strategy and leadership. It seeks to serve as a bridge among academia, the private sector and the government, breaking the walls that have traditionally separated them.

The Center for Strategic & Diplomatic Studies conducts the “Conversation Series on Global Security,” which brings to the university leading experts and diplomats for an in-depth conversation on global security. It organizes conferences and highly specialized workshops about international affairs, and endeavors to produce non-ideological and non-partisan policy recommendations that contribute to international peace and harmony. It is currently developing an academic program on Global Leadership.
