RUSI: The Royal United Services Institute

By The Cove June 10, 2019

The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) is an independent think tank engaged in cutting-edge defence and security research. A unique institution, founded in 1831 by the Duke of Wellington, RUSI embodies nearly two centuries of forward thinking, free discussion and careful reflection on defence and security matters.

RUSI is a British institution, but operates with an international perspective. Satellite offices in Doha and Washington DC reinforce its global reach and over the years RUSI has amassed an outstanding reputation for quality and objectivity. RUSI's heritage and location at the heart of Whitehall, together with its range of contacts - both inside and outside government, but always strictly independent of it - give it a unique insight and authority.
