Team Members

The staff of the Institute for Global Affairs and its annual cohort of nonresident fellows bring together their expertise and diverse academic and professional experience in pursuit of a common goal: to produce trustworthy and informative content that equips people with the tools they need to navigate the world. The IGA team boldly tests assumptions through independent research and analysis. They also endeavor to create more inclusive foreign policy discussions, which narrows the distance between decision-makers and the public they serve.
