Abstract

The American Security Project, or ASP, is a non-partisan organization devoted to educating the American public about the changing state of national security. The ASP’s position is that true security can no longer be determined by military power alone. The world is a global community, and factors such as economic power, diplomatic skill, and political ideals all play a role in maintaining security. ASP leads the effort by promoting communication and nonpartisanship in America.
