Since 1989, the Stimson Center has been devoted to finding pragmatic solutions for global security challenges. We are proud of the impact our research and policy analysis has made towards reducing threats to global, regional, and national security. We enhance policymakers’ and the public’s understanding of the changing global security agenda by engaging both civil society and industry in problem-solving in order to fill gaps in existing governance structures while strengthening institutions and processes for a more peaceful world.

The Stimson Center is a different kind of think tank – both effective and innovative. It develops innovative approaches to non-conventional challenges such as water management, wildlife poaching, and responses to humanitarian crises, while still playing a key role in debates on nuclear proliferation, arms trafficking, and defense policy.

The Center is a nonprofit and nonpartisan think tank funded by research contracts, grants, and donations. Our funders are vital to sustaining the excellent, independent, and meaningful work of our experts. The individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies that contribute to Stimson provide those vital financial resources to support our wide range of research projects and allow us to continue finding pragmatic solutions for global security challenges.
