CSIS is a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to advancing practical ideas to address the world’s greatest challenges. We aim to define the future of national security. We are guided by a distinct set of values—non-partisanship, independent thought, innovative thinking, cross-disciplinary scholarship, integrity and professionalism, and talent development. CSIS’s values work in concert toward the goal of making real-world impact. CSIS has grown steadily throughout its nearly sixty years, most notably during the last two decades. Its programmatic breadth and impact, expertise and policy influence, annual revenue, and reputation and brand have all deepened during this time. With the adoption of a new strategic plan, CSIS is seeking to stay ahead of changes to the international environment, as well as in the Washington policy ecosystem.
