James Andrew Lewis is the Director and Senior Fellow of the Technology and Public Policy Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C.



Before joining CSIS, he was a member of the U.S. Foreign Service and Senior Executive Service, where he worked on regional security, military intervention and insurgency, conventional arms negotiations, technology transfer (including global arms sales), encryption, internet security, space remote sensing, high-tech trade with China, sanctions and Internet policy.

His diplomatic experience included negotiations on military basing in Asia, the Cambodia peace process, and the five-power talks on arms transfer restraint. Lewis led the U.S. delegation to the Wassenaar Arrangement Experts Group for advanced civil and military technologies. He was also assigned to the U.S. Southern Command for Just Cause, the U.S. Central Command for Desert Shield, and to the National Security Council and the U.S. Central American Task Force for programs in Nicaragua. In 2010 he served as Rapporteur for the UN Group of Government Experts on Information Security.

Lewis has authored more than eight publications since coming to CSIS, [1], on cybersecurity, innovation, military space, and identity management. He was the Project Director for CSIS’s Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency. In 1984, Lewis earned a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
