National Security Research and
Many security threats to the Philippines
are non-military in nature. Pressing security concerns like
terrorism, poverty, and environmental degradation, need to
be addressed in an informed and intelligent manner.
The Institute for National Security Studies
(INSS) administers the research program of the NDCP. It embodies
the College’s effort to be the center of excellence
in strategic thinking on national security matters in the
Philippines and in the Asia-Pacific region.
The INSS undertakes research activities
in accordance with the Research Agenda of the College. Its
research work is supported by a comprehensive computerized
databank on national, regional, and global security. The INSS
also participates actively and plays an increasingly major
role in national security policy research and advocacy in
the Philippines and in the Asia Pacific region.
The Strategic Studies Group (SSG) is composed
of eminent academics and retired military officers who are
multi-disciplinary specialists and whose expertise is valuable
in informing our country’s defense and security policies.
