The Council on Strategic Risks (CSR) is dedicated to anticipating, analyzing and addressing core systemic risks to security in the 21st century, with special examination of the ways in which these risks intersect and exacerbate one another.
The Center for Climate and Security (CCS) is a non-partisan institute of the CSR, and the only institution exclusively focused on the intersection of climate and security. CCS envisions a world which recognizes that climate change threats to security are significant and unprecedented, and acts to address those threats in a manner that is commensurate to their scale, consequence and probability.
The Converging Risks Lab (CRL) is a research and policy development-oriented program designed to study converging, cross-sectoral risks in a rapidly-changing world. The CRL brings together experts from within the CSR’s distinct institutes, and from multiple sectors of the security community, to ask forward-thinking questions about these converging risks, and to develop anticipatory solutions.
The Center on Strategic Weapons (CSW) is a non-partisan institute of the CSR that seeks to analyze and address the development, diffusion and use of strategic weapons. CSW recognizes that nuclear, biological, chemical and other strategic weapons threats are rising due to significant changes in the international security landscape, and develops achievable solutions for addressing those threats.
