Transnational Threats

The Transnational Threats Program (TNTP) focuses on the threat and evolution of terrorist networks and the irregular activities of countries like Russia, Iran, and China.

TNTP examines the activities of organizations like the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Lebanese Hezbollah, Shia militias, and far-right and far-left extremist networks—including counterterrorism efforts. TNTP also analyzes Russian, Iranian, and Chinese irregular warfare activities, such as covert action, economic warfare, support to non-state partners, cyber operations, disinformation, political warfare, and espionage. TNTP conducts extensive fieldwork overseas, compiles and analyzes data sets, and utilizes satellite imagery and other types of qualitative and quantitative analysis.
