Divergent Options is a non-politically aligned non-revenue generating national security website that, in 1,000 words or less, provides unbiased, dispassionate, candid articles that assess a national security situation, present multiple options to address the situation, and articulate the risk and gain of each option. Please note that while we assess a national security situation and may provide options, we never recommend a specific option.
Below you will see a Call for Papers. If you are not interested in writing on this topic, we always welcome individual articles on virtually any national security situation an author is passionate about. Please do not let our call for papers cause you to hesitate to send us your idea. We look forward to hearing from you!
Call for Papers:
Divergent Options is calling for national security papers assessing situations or discussing options related to Investing and Divesting.
For the purpose of this Call for Papers, investing and divesting refers to choices made, in a resource constrained environment, to address existing or future national security situations. For example, the U.S. divested addressing threats in Afghanistan and invested in addressing threats posed by the People’s Republic of China. What investment or divestment decisions are being made? What investment or divestment decisions are not being made? Are these the right decisions? What factors are driving action or inaction related to national security investment or divestment?
Please limit your article to 1,000 words and write using our Options Paper or Assessment Paper templates which are designed for ease of use by both writers and readers alike.
Please send your article to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30, 2023.
