The Center for Counterasymmetric Studies is a research organization dedicated to identifying emerging national security trends.
Gray conflict. Hybrid war. Guerrilla geopolitics. Unbalanced warfare. In recent years, numerous terms have been proposed to encompass the new types of asymmetric strategies being employed by states to achieve national aims. But far more important than terminology is understanding the phenomenon in a rigorous fashion. What elements link it to and differentiate it from past eras? Does it represent something fundamentally new? Most importantly, what type of policy responses are most effective against this set of problems?
The center's first class of fellows will be introduced in the Spring of 2016.
