Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security

(2012; Washington; 48 staff and fellows;

Formerly the International Security program of the Atlantic Council, founded in 1961, which has been extended and reformed into the Center. It works with the Council’s other regional and functional programs and centers to produce multi-disciplinary analyses on how the United States can best work with like-minded countries to shape the future.  “The Center honors General Brent Scowcroft’s legacy of service and embodies his ethos of non-partisan commitment to the cause of international security, support for US international leadership in cooperation with allies and partners, and legacy of mentorship to the next generation of leaders.”
Sponsors events, e.g., “Navigating a Multi-Polar Values World” (June 2018). Houses the Emergent Futures Lab to “explore issues that may seem fringe, implausible, or unpredictable today,” but which have the possibility to cause significant disruption to the United States and its allies in the future.
