Our mission is to solve tactical and strategic problems via the integration of security and science.
The Center for Security and Science (CSS) organizes, implements and manages action symposia and fact gathering research studies, enabling the CSS to respond quickly to customer needs with respect to time and cost constraints.
The CSS defines and helps implement specific programs for the assessment, education and organization of civilians by utilizing current contacts between U.S. and in-country agencies where bureaucracies have assigned border control missions aimed at taking action against criminal activities, including drug, weapons, contraband materials and controlled substances smuggling.
Regionally, the CSS offers academic resources and scholarly expertise in the United States and abroad for the Caucasus and Central Asia. The Center opened a Moldovan office in February 2000 under the directorship of Valeria Ciobanu and has established a cooperative relationship with a Russian university.
Working in the Caucasus and Central Asia, the CSS offers specific and current government contacts at local, regional and intergovernmental ministerial levels. These contacts are based on scholastic and research action groups with a relatively low profile and benign political and nationalistic bias.
