Learn More about Think-Tank and NGO Counterterrorism Jobs at Henley-Putnam University, the Leader in Strategic Security
Think-Tank and NGO counterterrorism jobs are virtually limitless in today’s dynamic global strategic security environment. For example, international non-government organizations like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) occasionally hire individuals with counterterrorism backgrounds that possess either in-country or extensive academic experience (or a combination of both) to work in watch centers where they monitor and analyze major current events that may have an impact on member states around the globe.
NGOs like the Organization of American States (OAS), North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and the Organization for the Prohibition for Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are located in major cosmopolitan cities around the globe like Vienna, Geneva, New York, and Washington, DC, and employ researchers and analysts with specific counterterrorism-related skill sets.
National NGOs and other qausi-governmental, independent organizations are highly selective and enviable places to work because of their influence on policy and decisionmakers through their production of high-quality research, and typically only hire those with advanced degrees. Examples include the RAND Corporation, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Brookings Institution, the Council on Foreign Relations, American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Middle East Institute, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and the Hudson Institute.
There are many more think tanks out there and, while predominately centered in the Washington, DC metro area and New York City, opportunities can be found in different locations around the United States and even abroad.
