Competitive Statecraft

Competitive Statecraft is the integration and synchronization of all instruments of national power in deliberate campaigns during both peace and war to secure the nation’s interests and advance its values.


The Competitive Statecraft Initiative harnesses expertise from across the government, academia, business, and civil society to develop, advocate for, and educate toward innovative, whole-of-society concepts, policies, strategies, and structures to protect American interests and promote universal values.
