The Center for Counterasymmetric Studies is a research organization dedicated to identifying, deterring, and countering asymmetric national security threats.
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 public presence and its first class of fellows will be introduced in the Summer of 2015.
