The Center for Global Policy (CGP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. CGP is the first independent, non-partisan American think tank working exclusively on issues at the intersection of U.S. foreign policy and Muslim geopolitics. We aim to enhance U.S. security and global stability by empowering our foreign policy decision-makers with pragmatic recommendations grounded in informed and nuanced analysis.
Since our inception in January 2016, CGP has worked diligently to establish a strong institutional base and a solid foundation for our future growth. As part of our initial effort to produce timely and relevant analysis for policymakers, CGP established a presence in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 2016 and recruited several top scholars addressing critical foreign policy issues. CGP started to develop and enhance our relations with specific government agencies and the broader think tank arena. CGP program directors gave presentations at the State Department, Department of Homeland Security, National Counter-Terrorism Center, and the Department of Defense. We also had several joint events with prominent think tanks including the Woodrow Wilson Center and the United States Institute of Peace. Our scholars also participated in Congressional briefings on the Hill and presented at a number of policy events at various organizations, such as the Brookings Institution and the Program on Extremism at George Washington University.
At the core of CGP’s work is the content we produce. This includes our written content (articles, policy briefs and special reports) and our digital content (videos and podcasts), which all address timely topics facing policymakers in the foreign policy arena. The Navigator, launched in July 2017, is CGP’s signature policy offering. Published weekly, it provides hard-hitting analysis of the week’s most pressing issues at the intersection of U.S. foreign policy and Muslim geopolitics. The Navigator has been instrumental in raising CGP’s profile over the past year, elevating our work into the ranks of the capital’s thought leaders and policy makers. We have received many noteworthy accolades for various issues of The Navigator, such as the praise recently received from the State Department. CGP has also published several policy briefs and reports, two of which related to terrorism were featured in Homeland Security Today.
“The best we may have today to decipher, forecast, and plan our future seems to be the Center for Global Policy as the most perceptive think-tank in America, especially its weekly summary, The Navigator: A Weekly Analysis of Muslim Geopolitics.”
– Dr. Robert Dickson Crane, former adviser to President Richard Nixon
“I wanted to thank [CGP] for receiving our East African Delegation so graciously, and for your lucid and engaging presentation about the wonderful and important work you and your organization are doing. Your clarity and intelligence were totally captivating, and the accurate and objective information you provide to policy makers gave us all, both Africans and Americans, a sense of greater hope for the future in these unusually troubling times.”
– Robert Stucky, Credible Voices Exchange Program, Civilizations Exchange and Cooperation Foundation
“Thank you for writing a big picture piece and doing so in clear language. Much of the think-tank writing on these complex topics are very in the weeds making it difficult for practitioners to translate it into concrete action. This is great!”
– Adela Levis, State Department
“I’ve really enjoyed the CGP podcast. I just found it a few weeks ago and so have only listened to a few of them so far, but they’ve been really well done and provide insightful discussions of these issues.”
– Jeremy Barker, Operations Manager, Religious Freedom Institute
