"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.
In War on the Rocks' podcast series "Horns of a Dilemma," Clements Center's Will Inboden and Celeste Ward Gventer, Strauss Center Director Bobby Chesney, and ISP Director Steve Slick discuss Sen. Ben Sasse's Cyber Solarium.
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.”
