Lobo Institute advises, consults, and teaches on current and future conflicts, how to end conflicts and prevent their recurrence, and how to help those most affected.
We advise government and non-government leaders on national security policy. We illuminate conflicts to a broader audience through documentaries. We conduct research on the development and evolution of international conflicts and the concepts that have proven effective. We advise national and international media through objective analysis in the areas of our expertise.
We invest in the leaders of our future by teaching remotely, through on-campus lectures, and in-person seminars and conferences at your location or in Whitefish, Montana. Classes and symposiums are centered on international and U.S. government policy. We conduct training courses to better prepare journalists and non-governmental organization personnel working in areas of conflict.
The co-founders are former members of special operations units and understand the value of individual strength and the power of the team. This balance is what the wolf’s survival depends on, hence Lobo (Spanish for wolf) was chosen as the name. The founders have decades of experience at the senior levels of national security policy and irregular warfare. They pair this background with diplomats, humanitarian aid workers, journalist and others to develop methods to reduce the human costs in current conflicts and better prepare for the future.
