Royal United Services Institute for Defence Studies
The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) is the oldest defence and security think tank in the world.
The group's stated purpose is to "study, promote debate and provide options on all issues relating to national and international defence and security". Published six times a year, the RUSI Journal is the Institute's flagship publication on national and international defence and security issues.
Founded in 1831 by Arthur Wellesley it is based in the centre of Whitehall. It states that "its original mission "was to study naval and military science, what Clausewitz called the art of war. It still does so." This has extende dinto areas of defence management and defense procurement. In recent years it has broadened it remit " to include all issues of defense and security, including "terrorism" and the ideologies which foster it."
Its special guests in recent years have included President Bush, the Prime Minister, The secretary general of NATO and the Director General of the Security Service. The chief of Defence Staff traditionally speaks at RUSI once a year.
The RUSI has many interesting fellows, including many spooks, diplomats and military movers and shakers that are covered by Wikispooks.
