The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) works to ensure that American security strategy is well formulated by improving how our leaders understand conflict and military issues. ISW enhances the quality of policy debates on national security issues by providing open-source independent analysis, accurate data, and superior insight on today’s most challenging crises.
Praescient has supported ISW analysts as they have developed analysis on a range of topics, including the structure and composition of the Free Syrian Army, and evolving security and political dynamics in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Institute for the Study of Violent Groups (ISVG) is an open-source research center at the University of New Haven focused on enhancing understanding of extremist networks and transnational criminal organizations. ISVG’s expansive data-collection program has created opportunities for the Institute to support researchers, analysts, and decision-makers.
Praescient has partnered with ISVG to further their data-collection efforts through the use of advanced analytic platforms. Praescient and ISVG together identify opportunities to transfer tailored ISVG datasets on criminal organizations and terrorist networks to operational stakeholders in government.
The Critical Threats Project (CTP) of the American Enterprise Institute conducts open-source tracking and analysis of a range of key national security challenges. Praescient supports CTP analysts as they develop studies on terrorist networks and political dynamics in Yemen, Somalia, North Africa, Pakistan, and elsewhere. CTP’s work has not only shaped strategic policy debates about emerging threats, but also advanced the understanding of operators contending with them directly.
