The Aspen Strategy Group (ASG) is a policy program of the Aspen Institute, based in Washington D.C. The ASG is a membership-based forum composed of current and former policymakers, academics, journalists, and business leaders whose aim is to explore the preeminent foreign policy and national security challenges facing the United States.
The roots of the Aspen Strategy Group date back to the 1970s, when the Aspen Institute sponsored an annual conference for researchers associated with arms control projects at leading universities and think tanks. By 1984, the Aspen Strategy Group was founded formally as a policy program of the Aspen Institute, concentrating on strategic relations and arms control issues, with particular emphasis on the U.S.-Soviet relationship.
The main activities of the ASG include its annual Summer Workshop meeting in Aspen, several Track II dialogues such as the U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue and the U.S.-China Strategic Dialogue, and the Aspen Ministers Forum, led by Madeleine K. Albright, whch convenes former foreign ministers from around the world to focus on international security.
