Introducing The Burn Bag Newsletter, a weekly periodical focusing on national security and the factors that shape it. Our contributors are young professionals and students across a wide range of academic and industry disciplines who all share a common understanding: every policy decision affects national security.

In each newsletter, you’ll read apolitical analysis of domestic and global affairs by burgeoning experts in fields ranging from trade policy, to public health, to international development, and beyond. Each writer’s unique focus keeps our content distinct. As such, our aim is not just to keep you informed, but also to provide you with perspectives you might not yet have considered on issues of which you might not yet have heard.

Sign up here to make sure you receive our latest edition in your inbox! You can also find the latest editions of the newsletter here:
