Think tank

RUSI's purpose is to study, promote debate, report, and provide options on all issues relating to national and international defense and security. RUSI's knowledge of the international and national defense and security environments and its objectivity together with distinguished heritage, give RUSI unrivalled access to senior figures in the Ministry of Defense and other government departments. The institute has four principle roles: (1) through its research programs, to promote the study of selected national and international defense and security issues in order to make an independent and original contribution to thinking about defense and international security policy; (2) through its program of lectures, conferences, and seminars, to provide a forum for discussion of all aspects of national and international defense and security, set in a wide international context, bringing together participants from the armed forces, politicians, the civil and diplomatic services, industry, commerce, media, police, academia, and a wide range of other disciplines; (3) through its journal and other publications, to assist in creating informed opinion and extending knowledge of national and international defense and security matters; and (4) to encourage the maximum participation of individual, corporate, and diplomatic members in all these roles.
