Mathew J. Burrows and Jennifer Harris (initially published in April 2009).

Drafters of the National Intelligence Council’s 2025 report forecast potential effects of the ongoing financial crisis on the economy, the role of the state, and the shape of world order. Will reduced U.S. political and market clout be one of the casualties?

The Security Implications of Climate Change
John Podesta and Peter Ogden (initially published Winter 2007-08).

What Do They Really Want?: Obama’s North Korea Conundrum
Victor D. Cha (initially published October 2009).

A Win-Win U.S. Strategy for Dealing with Iran
Michael McFaul, Abbas Milani, and Larry Diamond (initially published Spring 2005).

In its nuclear negotiations with the rest of the world, Iran has been pursuing a strategy of “heads you lose, tails we win.” The United States needs a bold and fundamentally different strategy that would engage the Iranian regime and people on two tracks, allowing U.S. diplomats to pursue arms control and democratization at the same time.
