Straus Military Reform Project


Washington, D.C., United States

CDI was founded by retired senior military officers to serve as an independent monitor of the military and has developed special expertise on all matters relating to the US military, foreign policy, military spending, and weapons. CDI is dedicated to strengthening security through international cooperation, reduced reliance on unilateral military power to resolve conflicts, reduced reliance on nuclear weapons, a transformed and reformed military establishment, and prudent oversight of and spending on defense programs. Through a variety of publications and services, CDI seeks to contribute alternative views on security to promote wide-ranging discourse and debate. The center educates the public and informs policymakers about issues of security policy, strategy, operations, weapon systems, and defense budgeting and pursues creative solutions to the problems of today and tomorrow. CDI aims to improve understanding between the United States and key nations on security matters through new media initiatives that inform and educate opinion-makers, policymakers, and the general public.
