"Vietnam's Indelible Legacy: How the War Changed International Policymaking:" War on the Rocks Managing Editor Usha Sahay sat down with Clements Center Executive Director Will Inboden, Associate Director Celeste Ward Gventer, and Faculty Affiliates Mark Atwood Lawrence and Aaron O'Connell to discuss the enduring influence of the Vietnam War on modern-day scholars and policymakers.
Every year, the Clements Center takes 20 UT undergraduate students to London for a unique four-week Maymester study abroad program to study the US-UK special relationship at King's College London. The program includes visits to important landmarks in British cultural heritage and Anglo-American strategic history, as well as private events with senior policymakers and historians.
Steve Slick publishes "U.S. Intelligence Should Embrace Sasse's Solarium Commission" in War on the Rocks. "We sorely need new thinking, broader consensus, and greater urgency on cyber policy."
In War on the Rocks, Celeste Ward Gventer compares the Trump Administration's Space Force to organizational constructs the Department of Defense has pursued in the past. She discuss the option of creating a “space corps” inside the Air Force, establishing a functional combatant command, and creating a whole new branch of the U.S. military. In the end she concludes that a new service “is as likely to bog our efforts in a new bureaucracy as it is to focus them.”
