The Institute for National Security Studies launches and engages in innovative, relevant, high-quality research that shapes the public discourse of issues on Israel's national security agenda, and provides policy analysis and recommendations to decision makers, public leaders, and the strategic community, both in Israel and abroad. INSS conducts research in the multiplicity of fields that comprise security studies and impact on strategic issues relating to Israel's national security and public policy. INSS researchers are guided by the four core values of professionalism, relevance, intellectual independence, and teamwork. The practical application of INSS research takes the form of "out of the box" thinking and the design of policy options for decision makers in government, the defense establishment, the strategic community, and the private sector.
