Triangle Papers/Task Force Reports and Project Work

The major project work of the Trilateral Commission generally involves teams of authors from our three regions working together for a year or so on reports which are discussed in draft form in the annual meeting and then published as Task Force Reports in the series known as the Triangle Papers. The authors typically consult with many others in the course of their work. Their reports are made to the Commission, but the Commission itself does not take formal positions on them. Current project work is focused on addressing the challenges of globalization.

Task Force Reports to the Trilateral Commission have covered a wide range of topics. The most recent are The Global Economic Crisis by E. Gerald Corrigan, Sir Callum McCarthy, and Naoki Tanaka and Nuclear Disarmament and Nonproliferation by Harold Brown, Gilles Andréani, Kim Sung-Han, Sergei Karaganov, Ariel E. Levite, Masashi Nishihara, and Rajiv Sikri. Recent Task Force Reports may be ordered from Brookings Institution Press.Two earlier reports are Engaging Iran and Building Peace in the Persian Gulf Region by Volker Perthes, Ray Takeyh, and Hitoshi Tanaka, and Energy Security and Climate Change by John Deutch, Anne Lauvergeon, and Widhyawan Prawiraatmadja.  

PDFs of these and other Task Force Reports have been posted on the Commission's website along with instructions for downloading. The most recent are available for purchase from Brookings Institution Press.
