The Center for Advanced Studies in Science and Technology Policy ("CAS") is a private, non-partisan research and advisory organization focused on information, technology and national security policy and related issues.
The Center seeks to inform and influence national and international policy- and decision-makers in both the public and private sectors by providing sound, objective analysis and advice, in particular by identifying and articulating issues that lie at the intersection of technologically enabled change and existing practice in policy, law, government, and industry.
In addition to its independent research activities and public engagements, the Center provides select advisory services to policy-makers in government and decision-makers in the private sector.
