At Divergent Options We Aspire To Do Four Things:

1.  We publish articles by writers who are writing on national security situations of their choosing.

2.  We publish multiple articles on a national security situation that we choose.

3.  We partner with research organizations to call for papers on a national security situation they have requested us to explore.

4.  We partner with academic institutions to give students a place to publish their options for national security situations.

Please note that a national security situation can be one that is externally focused e.g. what is Country X going to do about County Y or internally focused e.g. Country X should invest more in Y capability.
