Since its inception in 1991 the Project on Defense Alternatives has sought to adapt security policy to the challenges and opportunities of the post-Cold War era.
Toward this end it promotes consideration of the broadest range of defense options. Central to its mission is the development of "transitional security policy," which would serve to create conditions favorable to the advent of regional and global cooperative security regimes.
In its approach to security issues the Project seeks to uniquely combine pragmatism and vision.
Although PDA emphasizes the reformulation of US defense policy, it has contributed since its inception to the development of defense alternatives for NATO and has pioneered proposals for the "defensive restructuring" of armed forces in Eastern Europe, Russia, and the developing world.
