  • Public forums for the broader discussion of issues critical to the U.S. policy-planning process
  • Reports, point papers, policy recommendations, and monograph- or book-length studies for dissemination to a wide audience of key policy makers
  • Major conferences, seminars, training workshops, and simulation exercises
  • Quick-reaction assessments of breaking events
