Initiative for the Study of Emerging Threats

The security challenges facing the world are increasingly complex and varied. We help make sense of them.

About Us

In an age of rapidly evolving technology, declining democratic norms and principles, acts of aggression by state and non-state actors, and acute climate and public health crises, the world is confronting complex and dynamic security challenges. The Center for Global Affairs (CGA) at the NYU School of Professional Studies (SPS), in close collaboration with practitioners, has long been dedicated to identifying, understanding, and exploring responses to non-traditional and new security challenges. The Initiative for the Study of Emerging Threats (ISET) reflects and extends this mission.

ISET is led by Dr. Mary Beth Altier, head of the Transnational Security Concentration within CGA's MS in Global Affairs. The Initiative brings together faculty members, students, and affiliates of the program with key stakeholders to consider what challenges may be lurking just over the horizon, and how we can best prepare for them. ISET engages in peer-reviewed research and timely commentary, holds roundtables and other public events, and supports the CGA’s mission in developing and disseminating the knowledge and skills needed to address the challenges of the future through practical education provided by the MS in Global Affairs and the MS in Global Security, Conflict and Cyber Crime. ISET is proud to host yearly, the US Army War College’s International Strategic Crisis Negotiation Exercise for Masters’ students and also a number of Consulting Practicum where graduate students can engage first hand in applied research on pressing international, national, and human security issues.    

Key themes that ISET addresses include:

  • The changing conduct of war including the use of proxies and private military companies
  • Disinformation, malign influence operations, and subversion
  • Recent trends and technologies in violent extremism and insurgency
  • Radicalization, recruitment, and rehabilitation of terrorists and foreign fighters
  • Cyber-conflict and cybercrime
  • Transnational crime, including the trafficking of drugs, people, and weapons; and financial crime and money laundering
  • Corruption, especially as it impacts aid, development, and governance
  • Energy, climate change, and resource scarcity
  • Respect for human rights and privacy in the implementation of security measures or new technologies
Director's Message
Mary Beth Altier, MA, PhD
Director and Clinical Associate Professor

Welcome! The world is becoming increasingly interconnected and yet, we are currently witnessing nation-states turning inward rather than outward. Yet, threats like terrorism, climate change, pandemics, cyberattacks, biological and nuclear weapons, refugee flows, and corruption require innovative solutions and international cooperation. How do we anticipate and thwart new and emerging threats in an increasingly complex global order?

The Initiative for the Study of Emerging Threats (ISET) follows the broader mission of the NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs in seeking not just to catalog and to describe the world's challenges, but to play an active, imaginative, and positive role in creating practical solutions to them. ISET draws upon an extraordinary and inspiring faculty, the efforts of a diverse and entrepreneurial group of graduate students and alumni, and the resources of New York University, one of the most well respected and globally connected institutions of higher learning in the world.

This is a new and ambitious endeavor and inevitably a work in progress, constantly evolving, forever exploring new risks and new strategies to prevent, minimize, or resolve them. We look forward to working with you in that mission.

Practical Education

The MSGA and MSGCC programs offer a flexible schedule, with the option of part-time study and taking courses across NYU departments. Students will gain comprehensive insight and become well-equipped to analyze some of the most pressing security issues of our time. Our curriculum delves into the causes and geopolitical effects of recent acts of state aggression, terrorism and civil war, rising far-right homegrown violent extremism, refugee crises, a proliferation of fragile states, climate catastrophes including food and water insecurity, intelligence and economic espionage, drug and human trafficking, global financial crime, and post-conflict reconstruction. We also examine how technology and globalization are reshaping the nature of warfare, from the evolution of cyber and hybrid warfare to autonomous weapons systems and the exploitation of social media, encryption, and artificial intelligence.

Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of transnational security issues, students are offered the flexibility to combine their focus area with another concentration field, like Peacebuilding, International Relations, Environment and Energy Policy, International Development and Humanitarian Assistance, Human Rights and International Law, or Gender. Additionally, students can choose to complete specializations in Data Analytics, Global Risk, the United Nations, and Emerging Technologies.

Our program emphasizes the link between theory and practice, with most students engaging in internships or participating in our Consulting Practicum in New York City. For those seeking international experiences, our Global Field Intensives provide a unique opportunity for students to gain valuable in-country skills and knowledge. Additionally, we host an annual International Strategic Crisis Negotiations Exercise with the US Army War College, where students simulate high-level diplomatic negotiations surrounding a real-world conflict. Our students have also been invited to participate in the US Army War College’s National Strategy Seminar competition. Employers find our graduate students possess not only the requisite academic knowledge and analytic skills necessary to excel, but also the practical experience and connections in their field.

Graduates and current students find a wide range of employment opportunities across various sectors. Some work in government agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US State Department, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Counterterrorism Center, the Department of Defense, New York Police Department, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office (or in similar organizations in their home countries). Alums of the program are also employed as intelligence, political risk, or security analysts in the private sector at esteemed organizations like Kroll, K2 Intelligence, NBC Universal, RANE, Ergo, Control Risks, Morgan Stanley, Teneo, AIG, StoneTurn, Facebook, and Dataminr. Others work for the UN or their country’s mission to the UN or contribute to international security issues and foreign policy discussions as research analysts at prominent think tanks, including the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, The Soufan Center, Human Rights First, New America, Network Contagion Research Institute, and the Council on Foreign Relations.
