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 across the globe.

Under the leadership of Director Tai Ming Cheung, IGCC’s ongoing work in its core areas is balanced by the recognition that evolving threats to global stability require exploration of nontraditional connections between and across disciplines and institutions.

IGCC works between and across disciplines and institutions. Projects exploring the security implications of climate change, advanced technologies, and global health threats are complements to those with a more traditional security focus such as nonproliferation, great power competition, and political violence.
