The Global Analysis Programme (GAP) aims to provide timely analysis of relevant global developments and to raise early warning of competition and conflict that could have implications for the British Army. The GAP monitors not only specific countries and geopolitical developments, but also cross-cutting thematic issues of importance, such as migration patterns, environmental and health crises, and international terrorism. The output of the GAP’s research and monitoring is communicated to the Army through written in-depth briefings on specific issues or countries, lectures on emerging issues delivered by subject matter experts and an annual conference.
The GAP also seeks to proactively work with relevant Army departments in conducting new research, locating relevant and world-leading subject matter experts and planning events and briefings.
In order to fulfil its role, the GAP draws on an ever growing national and international network of expertise.
