The Princeton Project on National Security was formed in Fall, 2004 by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, with support from the Ford Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, and a generous gift from David Rubenstein. Together they launched the multi-year, "bipartisan initiative" to develop a sustainable and effective national security strategy for the United States of America.

About

The Princeton Project brings together leading thinkers on national security from government, academe, business, and the non-profit sector to analyze key issues and develop innovative responses to a range of national security threats. The Project convened a series of working groups to consider the general framework and key elements of U.S. security strategy. The Project then held conferences in the U.S. and abroad to solicit input on a draft strategy and move toward a more refined document. The Project culminated in September 2006 with the publication of "Forging A World of Liberty Under Law: U.S. National Security in the 21st Century." Project co-directors Anne-Marie Slaughter and G. John Ikenberry presented their findings at a series of events in the U.S., Europe, and Asia in 2007.
