Pragmatic Steps, Global Security
Stimson is a trusted global source of independent, expert knowledge. We are a community of analysts devoted to offering pragmatic solutions to todayâ€™s most pressing security challenges. Stimson offers in-depth analysis, fair-minded criticism, and fresh perspectives focused on results for the policymaking communityâ€”executive and legislative branches, foreign governments and organizationsâ€”as well as the media and concerned citizens.
Lincoln Bloomﬁeld, Jr. Chairman of the Board
“Stimson has built its reputation by selecting issues where new approaches are needed, and addressing them with an open mind freed from ideology. We advance original thinking on consequential security challenges in a nonpartisan spirit. What fuels our search for better answers is the recognition that not just failed policies, but even winning strategies from the past may not be enough to secure the peace in a changing world.”

Richard Armitage; The Hon. William Perry; Chairman Mike Rogers; and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
A Different Sort of Enterprise “We founded Stimson at an ideal time—1989, when the world was changing radically and familiar policy prescriptions were increasingly irrelevant. We were committed to offering problem-solving approaches, to pursuing field investigations and outreach, and to building a reputation for quality analysis. We were drawn to Henry L. Stimson as the namesake for our new center because he embodied the traits of international engagement, bipartisanship, and a track record on the issues of war and peace, nuclear weapons, and regional security that were our focus. Like Stimson, we wished to pursue pragmatic steps toward ideal objectives.

Research and Analysis Convening Diverse Stakeholders Work with Policymakers Collaboration with a Global Network
Global Priorities Transnational Threats Regional Security Effective Institutions Stimson conducts in-depth research and analysis to provide policy alternatives, and overcome obstacles to a more peaceful and secure world. Stimsonâ€™s pragmatic approach seeks to understand and illuminate complex issues, develop new knowledge, and engage policymakers, policy implementers, and non-governmental institutions to craft recommendations that are nonpartisan, actionable, and effective.
Transnational Threats nuclear Weapons / environmental Vulnerabilities / Weaponization of space / Climate Change Biological Weapons / nonproliferation / small Arms / Pandemic disease
Reducing the global risks created by weapons of mass destruction and proliferation continues to be a major focus of Stimson analysis and policy impact. In addition, in response to the changing threat environment, Stimson has expanded its research agenda to encompass emerging transnational challenges sparked by accelerating globalization, technological advances, and environmental stress. Finding workable solutions to these complex, often interrelated challenges requires ingenuity, new insights, and cooperative action.

Grounded in field research, data, and case studies, Stimson recommendations on organizational reform, best practices, and lessons learned have exceptional credibility with policy implementers.
