Strategic Partnership - Premier

Strategic Partnerships give institutions, both government and private, a thorough understanding of geopolitical risks to support decision-making and operations.

Premier partnerships are intended for companies and institutions who seek to further develop their knowledge and understanding of international affairs. Companies that have an interest in or are expanding into a particular region or market will particularly benefit from the events and briefings offered by this level of partnership.

Premier partners benefit from the invaluable resources of expertise within the IISS network and staff through private tailored briefings, off the record roundtables with IISS experts, and invitations to members-only local and regional events.
