About the Project

The Center for Preventive Action produces Contingency Planning Memoranda focused on plausible short- to medium-term contingencies that could seriously threaten U.S. interests. The memos generate practical policy options that lessen the contingency’s likelihood and reduce fallout, should it occur. 

This publication series is made possible by the generous support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
