Global climate change drives insurgent conflict through water shortage and desertification. Geopolitical struggles are played out through subversion, the weaponization of information, and the corruption of national elites. Organized crime weakens national borders and drains state budgets, encouraging discontent and depriving armed forces of the resources they need to ensure security by conventional means. Today’s and tomorrow’s security challenges are diverse, complex, and interconnected. ISET focuses on practical and solution-centered research on the range of modern security challenges, including:

  • The changing face of war and its growing overlap with terrorism and insurgency
  • Information warfare and subversion
  • Cybercrime, cyberwar, and cyberterrorism
  • Radicalization, recruitment, and rehabilitation of terrorists and foreign fighters
  • Transnational crime, including the trafficking of drugs, people, and weapons; and financial crime and money laundering
  • Corruption, especially as it impacts aid, development, and governance
  • Energy, climate change, and resource scarcity
