Bridging the Gap promotes an informed and engaged public discourse on U.S. and global foreign policy challenges and solutions. We offer policy training and professional development for academics and doctoral students. We advocate for the pursuit of policy-relevant research and theoretically grounded policy work.
Supported largely by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and housed at the School of International Service at American University, Bridging the Gap is a nonpartisan organization. We maintain a core belief that responsible global engagement should be systematically proactive, seeking both to understand significant medium- and long-term global challenges, and to influence strategically how such trends affect U.S. interests and those of the rest of the world.
