Global Security

The Initiative for Global Security at the Dickey Center advances Dartmouth's contributions to international security through research designed to improve policymaking, promoting direct engagement with foreign policy-makers, and inspiring students to explore careers in international affairs. The Initiative pursues this mission with two guiding intentions: to generate and disseminate new knowledge of critical importance to global peace, and to prepare the next generation of leaders to create policy impact in a complex security environment, marked by a return to great power competition, civil wars, and novel emerging threats.
