RESEARCH AREAS

Election Interference

This area focuses on the extent that outside entities interfere in U.S. domestic elections, examining the tactics, tools, and approaches to disrupting U.S. elections, both from enemies foreign and domestic, and develop countermeasure strategies and tradecraft for political operatives, policymakers, and the general public.

Climate Change

Climate change is fundamentally a risk that is redefining politics in the United States and across the globe. From climate-induced migration to food, water and weather security, the earth’s evolving temperature is changing the nature of policymaking and politics. CSP scholars analyze these risks and develop proposals for understanding and mitigating them at the global, national, and state levels.

Cybersecurity and Emergent Technologies

This track studies cybersecurity, particularly as it affects critical infrastructure, as well as the security and political implications of emergent technologies such as AI, biometric-based technologies, cloud computing, and quantum computing. By bringing together leading technologists with social scientists, legal scholars, ethicists, and policy practitioners, this track examines the risks that disruptive innovation may pose, even if unintended, to the stability of democracy and democratic institutions.
