HSPI’s work resonates with the public and across the policy spectrum. We have hosted Secretaries of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, Michael Chertoff, and Janet Napolitano on multiple occasions for major policy addresses. We regularly testify before Congressional committees and government commissions on topics such as after-action reforms following Hurricane Katrina. HSPI has also has presented reports on extremism and counter-radicalization efforts before the Senate and House Homeland Security Committees. These reports served as Congress’ framework for multiple oversight hearings in which government policymakers and international subject matter experts were asked to respond.

HSPI staff engage the policy community and public through various publications, speeches, and conference presentations, as well as through the media. We are a leading source of insight and analysis for a variety of national and international media outlets, including major newspapers and television networks.

HSPI is a founding member of the Consortium for Homeland Defense and Security in America, together with the Heritage Foundation, the Center for Strategic and International Studies and the U.S. Army War College, and co-hosts the annual Threats at our Threshold symposium. HSPI's signature programs include its Ambassadors Roundtable Series on International Collaboration to Combat Terrorism and Insurgencies; and HSPI's Policy and Research Forums.
