Research at IGCC

IGCC researchers study a wide range of topics involving the security, environmental, and economic policies that shape our ability to prevent conflict and promote cooperation.

IGCC’s strengths derive from its identity as a leading international center for research on a broad range of traditional security issues, from nuclear non-proliferation to regional security dynamics in Northeast Asia and the Middle East. Ongoing work in these core areas is balanced by the recognition that evolving threats to global stability require exploration of nontraditional connections between and across disciplines and institutions. Work in newly emerging fields such as cybersecurity, national security, innovation, and technological development, the environment/human capital nexus, and new ways of modelling deterrence are complements to projects with a more traditional security focus.
