The Advanced Research and Assessment Group (ARAG) was a department of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom concerned with long-term planning and threat assessment. On 1 April 2009, ARAG was integrated into the Headquarters of the Defence Academy as the Research & Assessment Branch (R&AB).[1]

ARAG brought together experts from the military, academia and other fields in "research clusters" dedicated to specific areas of concern, in order to provide policy-makers with focussed analysis of international security issues.

ARAG worked closely with the Conflict Studies Research Centre, which was co-located with ARAG at the Defence Academy's Shrivenham campus.
