Biography

Eric Brown was a senior fellow at Hudson Institute from 2004 to 2022, in which role he studied Asian and Middle East affairs, international security and development, alternative geopolitical futures, and US diplomacy and strategy. He was also the editor, with Hillel Fradkin and Husain Haqqani, of the review Current Trends in Islamist Ideology. His work focused on the contest over order in West Asia, the geo-strategic ramifications of growing Trans-Asian connectivity, coping with state fragility, and US security strategy.

Mr. Brown conducted research across Eurasia on strategic, governance, educational and political issues as well as on developing new expeditionary diplomacy and stabilization tools and plans. He has a special interest in the geopolitics of mountainous areas, from the Zagros to the Himalayas. In 2017, he completed a field-work intensive study on US alliances from the Maghreb to India, and on strategies for bolstering allies against state fragility and breakdown and expanding grey zone conflict.
