CNA National Security Seminar


About CIP

CNA’s China and Indo-Pacific Security Affairs (CIP) Division is one of the nation’s largest non-governmental Asian security analytic groups, with over three dozen analysts with language skills and in-region experience.  Since 1998, it has provided US government leaders and the public the insights needed to make informed decisions.

About NSS

The CNA National Security Seminar series is an initiative to bring together thought leaders from across the U.S. government, academic and research institutions, the private sector, and U.S. partner nations to share their expertise, facilitate discussions, and contribute to an on-going dialogue about critical national security issues. CNA is uniquely positioned to examine the range of these issues through the Center for Naval Analyses, which supports the Department of Defense, and the Institute for Public Research, which supports homeland security, public safety, and emergency operations at all levels of government.
