International Organizations Program
Every year, the U.S. Congress appropriates billions of dollars to the United Nations (UN), international organizations, international financial institutions, regional organizations and multilateral development banks. These contributions are often provided with little or no U.S. oversight, and without a comprehensive strategy to advance U.S. interests.
FDD’s International Organizations Program (IOP) leverages FDD’s regional and subject matter expertise within its centers on American power to identify ways the United States can more strategically employ its resources.
Experts from FDD’s IOP conduct research and analysis across several lines of effort, including the Chinese Communist Party’s rise and influence within international organizations; great power competition at the UN Security Council, arms control agencies and other UN organizations; the use of lawfare by America’s adversaries; and how UN bodies are used to delegitimize close U.S. allies such as Israel and Taiwan.
FDD’s International Organizations Program team includes fellows and analysts with a range of backgrounds, including lawfare expertise, Middle East subject matter and language skills, Chinese language skills and data-driven mining capabilities to examine Chinese-language sources, and extensive experience in government, intelligence, military, and technology.
