Annual Report 2010 Center for Strategic and International Studies CSIS d5ac8796-ea33-40c4-893d-8b6046585335 At a time of new global opportunities and challenges, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) provides strategic insights and bipartisan policy solutions to decisionmakers in government, international institutions, the private sector, and civil society. A bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, DC, CSIS conducts research and analysis and develops policy initiatives that look into the future and anticipate change. Founded by David M. Abshire and Admiral Arleigh Burke at the height of the Cold War, CSIS was dedicated to finding ways for America to sustain its prominence and prosperity as a force for good in the world. Sam Nunn Former U.S. senator Sam Nunn became chairman of the CSIS Board of Trustees in 1999. Chairman of the Board of Trustees John J. Hamre John J.

The Information Age has transformed America's national and economic security. America's cyber infrastructure empowers us and also provides opportunity to those who seek to do us harm. When President Obama announced a new comprehensive approach to securing America's digital infrastructure, he made a point of thanking CSIS's Bipartisan Commission on Cybersecurity for pointing the way ahead. Senior U.S. government officials, members of Congress, industry heads, and international experts look to CSIS as a trusted venue to discuss cyber policy. CSIS's Cybersecurity Dinner Series, made possible by Northrop Grumman and CSIS's Cybersecurity Speaker Series, made possible by AT&T, are two such forums for cyber policy discourse. For example, General Keith Alexander (pictured on opposite page), America's first Cyber Commander, gave his first public address at CSIS. CSIS has also established a Cybersecurity Podcast Series that features candid interviews with leaders and experts in the field. 21d3803d-86db-4c12-95c0-6084fbedbfdc a2b49395-1cb2-43f7-82fc-5d9960d5d9fa Afghanistan and Iraq Provide decisionmakers in government and military with timely, authoritative updates on progress on the wars and reconstruction efforts. 4e94bbf2-66d6-4ede-a777-fd09bdf54e1e 6 CSIS's Arleigh Burke Chair in Strategy provides decisionmakers in government and military with timely, authoritative updates on progress on the wars and reconstruction efforts. CSIS scholars routinely travel to the region to meet with high-ranking officials and commanders in order to develop an independent view of events. CSIS reports shape perspectives on Capitol Hill and in the Executive Branch to such an extent that the New York Times has called a recent Burke Chair anthology of the U.S. war effort "required reading." CSIS has also sought to look to the future of the region with forward-looking analysis on the "Modern Silk Road," the northern distribution trade network linking Afghanistan to Central and South Asia, as well as alternative models of governance and state-building in Southwest Asia and beyond. Decisionmakers in Government Military Decisionmakers 8fc28fa1-c5eb-4d98-822e-c19ee5712295 a2b49395-1cb2-43f7-82fc-5d9960d5d9fa Energy and National Security [Provide] cutting-edge, independent analysis. 45b453d6-ba29-4641-b233-2c17e0738d5d 7 To better inform public debate, CSIS developed the "Impacts of the Gulf Oil Spill Series," a speaker series examining the complex interconnection between exploration, risk, regulatory environment, and economic consequences. CSIS's Energy and National Security Program is uniquely positioned and respected within government, industry, and nonprofit circles for its cutting-edge, independent analysis. This was most evident with the April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig and resulting oil spill, a tragic and polarizing event with effects that reached well beyond the Gulf. CSIS's energy team mobilized and played the role of honest broker between government, industry, and the public with thoughtful analysis on the spill and its longterm policy implications. a2b7fc31-312b-4582-a808-66412a1f1a55 a2b49395-1cb2-43f7-82fc-5d9960d5d9fa Global Health Be a leader in shaping how the U.S. government and international partners think about global health. 60cd285d-d860-42d0-afc5-0defc7d5f73c 8 CSIS's Global Health Policy Center has been a leader in shaping how the U.S. government and international partners think about global health. Health is vital to human development, economic growth, national security, and the building of stable ties between countries. CSIS's bipartisan Commission on Smart Global Health Policy addressed the nexus of global health and U.S. foreign policy by outlining a long-term strategic approach for U.S. global health investments. Chaired by CARE President and CEO and CSIS Trustee Helene Gayle and Admiral William Fallon, USN (ret.), the commission released its report A Healthier, Safer, and More Prosperous World in 2010. The commission report offers a five-point agenda for global health: 1. Maintain our commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis; 2. Prioritize women and children in U.S. global health efforts; 3. Strengthen prevention and health emergency response capabilities; 4. Ensure that the United States has the capacity to match our global health ambitions; and 5. Make smart investments in multilateral institutions. Since last spring, more than 30,000 copies of the commission report have been downloaded. CSIS continues to work closely with the Obama administration as it establishes its Global Health Initiative, a six-year plan to improve global health outcomes through careful integration of programs, a new business model that emphasizes measurement and accountability, and a woman- and girl-centered approach. A number of follow-on high-level activities are planned for 2011. Government Health Partners International Health Partners Admiral William J. Fallon U.S. Navy (ret.), Cochair, CSIS Commission on Smart Global Health Policy Helene D.

No other think tank in Washington has the ability to address the full array of geopolitical and economic issues confronting U.S. policy in Asia as CSIS. CSIS recently launched a dedicated Korea Chair, a Wadhwani Chair in India-U.S. Policy Studies, and Washington's leading Southeast Asia Program to go along with the already established Japan Chair and Freeman Chair in China Studies. In 2010, CSIS's entire Asia team produced a signature study for the MacArthur Foundation looking at new ways of addressing nontraditional security threats in the region as a pathway to increase regional cooperation. The project had a specific focus on energy security, climate change, and humanitarian crisis. All have the potential to shape Asia's politics and growth in the coming century. Two widely distributed reports grew out of this study, including Green Dragons: The Politics of Climate Change in Asia. The project has helped to influence how people in America and Asia think about emerging architecture in a time of shifting power relations in Asia and between Asia and the United States. 1bea042b-cd5a-493d-a91a-872375e08c69 a2b49395-1cb2-43f7-82fc-5d9960d5d9fa Defense-Industrial Base Studies Provide unvarnished analysis of the complex relationship between the Defense Department, the defense industry, and the public interest in a time of growing fiscal constraints. dfd34f9a-1ef5-4a97-8c94-2780d169282a 10 Secretary Gates' Efficiency Initiative has sought to find efficiencies in the department and apply savings to more deserving projects. Decisionmakers in Congress, the Executive Branch, and industry rely on CSIS to provide independent analysis and research to inform their thinking. CSIS was asked by Dr. Ashton Carter (pictured on opposite page), under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology, and logistics to host a series of dialogues with the defense industry entitled "Delivering Better Acquisition Value: Conversations with Industry." This past year CSIS also completed work on a review of the importance of the commercial space sector to U.S. national security and provided a framework for analyzing and evaluating options to improve access to commercial launch services. The success of this project led the Department of the Navy to ask CSIS to apply this innovative framework for analyzing the defense-industrial base, and this coming year CSIS will conduct a similar review of the shipbuilding industry. Projects like these build on the CSIS core capability to analyze defense budgets and industry. Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group (DIIG) CSIS's Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group (DIIG) provides unvarnished analysis of the complex relationship between the Defense Department, the defense industry, and the public interest in a time of growing fiscal constraints. bff866c9-6c10-4179-8b1b-a86b24b02b03 a2b49395-1cb2-43f7-82fc-5d9960d5d9fa Global Security Forum Conduct an annual Global Security Forum. d4321d27-cdaa-474b-abbd-e63e46686382 11 CSIS launched what is to become an annual signature policy conference, the CSIS Global Security Forum. Last May, the forum brought together foreign policy and national security leaders to discuss the top strategic challenges on the horizon. Gen. James Cartwright (USMC), vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, delivered keynote remarks on adapting to tomorrow's strategic challenges. Following General Cartwright's speech, the forum held nine concurrent sessions featuring such notable experts (all pictured on opposite page) as former national security adviser and CSIS trustee, Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft (USAF, ret.); David Ignatius of the Washington Post; former Joint Chiefs chairman Gen. Peter Pace (USMC, ret.); Amb. Thomas Pickering; and former deputy secretary of state and CSIS trustee Richard Armitage. Made possible with support by Finmeccanica, the innovative conference examined mediumand long-term global security issues such as U.S. engagement in the Middle East; post- U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan; cybersecurity; the role of nuclear weapons in national security strategy; U.S. power projection and overseas bases; the possibility of a domestic intelligence agency; robots on the battlefield; changes in the defense-industrial base; and perceptions of waning U.S. power in Asia. 42710728-710e-4549-ba89-053a9d633993 a2b49395-1cb2-43f7-82fc-5d9960d5d9fa Future of NATO 72a778c2-8d1e-4296-81b1-c5985a4b26fc 12 With help from CSIS security experts, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright prepared the report on NATO's new Strategic Concept: NATO 2020: Assured Security; Dynamic Engagement. NATO's Strategic Concept, which frames the Alliance's political goals and military requirements, had last been updated in 1999 and needed to be replaced with a document that reflects dramatic changes in global security affairs over the last decade. CSIS's senior vice president and Henry A. Kissinger Chair Stephen Flanagan served as Secretary Albright's lead adviser in her work as Chair of the Group of Experts on the new Strategic Concept. After nine months of deliberations and study, the Group's final report assessed the implications of changes in the global security environment and recommended that the Alliance expand its external partnerships, transform its military capabilities, and streamline its organizational structures to ensure its effectiveness over the coming decade. By clarifying Alliance consensus on these issues and advancing various reform proposals, the Albright report framed the main elements of the new Strategic Concept and facilitated the work of NATO's secretary general and member governments in drafting the final document. CSIS hosted the Washington launch of the report in May, featuring keynote remarks by Secretary Albright and former national security adviser and CSIS trustee Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft.

A CSIS-created task force, chaired by Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-IN), Sen. Robert P. Casey (D-PA), and Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN), addressed three key areas: raising agricultural productivity, investing in research and development, and improving trade policy. In April, CSIS published Cultivating Global Food Security, a report containing the task force's recommendations for the Obama administration and Congress. In addition to the task force report, CSIS produced four papers to examine in greater depth the issues of agricultural productivity, research and development, trade, and attitudes toward agricultural biotechnology and genetic modification. CSIS continues to shape thinking within the Obama administration's signature Feed the Future initiative. Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-IN) Sen. Robert P. Casey (D-PA) Rep.

Looking ahead, CSIS has laid the groundwork to augment current projects and expand into new areas and issues that will shape the twenty-first century. A sampling of new projects include: Focus on the role of the private sector in aid delivery.

We do so through a targeted outreach program that connects thousands of Capitol Hill staffers with CSIS products and research. We host regular events that help educate Congress on current policy matters. We organize policy discussions that bring Congress, the administration, and policy communities together, and we offer a convenient forum from which representatives and senators can discuss their priorities with the public and wider policy community. In the last year, CSIS experts testified before congressional committees a dozen times, hosted monthly forums on Capitol Hill, and briefed members and staff regularly. In 2010, 17 members of Congress spoke at events at CSIS, and several participated in audio or video interviews with CSIS programs. CSIS continues to be an effective resource for Congress with continued direct involvement of members in CSIS projects and a robust outreach effort that opens new doors for CSIS experts and their ideas.
