Export Controls Are a Defining Instrument of U.S. National Security
About this commentary series
The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) has launched a new project on export controls that will run through the beginning of 2021. This project examines the policy goals of U.S. export controls, their effectiveness, the role of allies and partners, and the potential unintended consequences of America’s growing use of export controls. As a part of this project, CNAS has asked a group of experts and policymakers to offer their perspectives on the policy goals that U.S. export controls should serve, and how and under what circumstances U.S. export controls can effectively achieve those policy goals. This is the first series of commentaries that CNAS will publish as a part of this project.
