Abstract : The RAND National Security Research Division (NSRD) conducts research on complex national security problems with an emphasis on the most pressing and difficult strategy and policy concerns of high-level defense policymakers and their staffs. NSRD provides independent and objective, high quality, authoritative analytical support to decisionmakers in the Department of Defense (DoD) and elsewhere in the national security and intelligence communities by: developing innovative solutions to complex problems using multidisciplinary teams of researchers; providing practical guidance and clear policy choices while also addressing barriers to effective implementation; meeting the highest research standards using advanced empirical methods and rigorous peer review; maintaining independence and objectivity by scrupulously avoiding partisanship and vested interests; serving the public interest by disseminating widely its research publications (subject to the constraints of national security) and encouraging staff to participate in public forums.
