Foreign Policy

The greatest problems facing democracy are far from isolated within America’s borders. Rather, they stretch across the world to every corner of the globe.

From security challenges to geopolitical issues and the threats of foreign adversaries, the most pronounced potential for solution-driven growth, multilateral collaboration, and coalition building are overseas with our allies.

Consequently, YIP’s foreign policy team plays a central role in analyzing the developing situations & affairs of countries, crises, and circumstances abroad with our partners.
