The Woodrow Wilson School's Princeton Project on National Security has announced it has released the reports of its seven working groups. The reports are the result of a series of closed conferences and working sessions in which over 70 academics, policymakers and practitioners representing a diverse range of expertise and perspectives convened to conduct rigorous research analysis and examine specific issue-areas critical to the development of a long-term and effective U.S. national security strategy. Each group's report presents key findings and proposals based on their analysis.

The groups' reports follow a 2005 public forum in which PPNS members shared mid-point observations of the seven working groups with experts in the field of foreign affairs.

PPNS working groups include, Grand Strategic Choices; Foreign Policy Infrastructure and Global Institutions; State Security and Transatlantic Threats; Economics and National Security; Reconstruction and Development; Anti-Americanism; and Relative Threat Assessment.

The Princeton Project on National Security (PPNS) is a non-partisan, major academic initiative to develop a long-term national security strategy for the United States, while strengthening and updating the intellectual underpinnings of U.S. national security strategy. Funding for the program is made possible by the Ford Foundation and David Rubenstein.
