Twenty-nine LBJ School authors have come together to craft interdisciplinary and resilience-based policy solutions, published today in one toolkit called "Resiliency in the Age of COVID-19". This toolkit comes as researchers from across The University of Texas at Austin continue to offer first-of-its-kind groundbreaking research and discovery in the fight against COVID and its long-lasting impacts on public health, business, and the future of governance. Clements Center Executive Director Will Inboden's contribution to this toolkit includes an essay on Intelligence and National Security, "The World that COVID Made: What Should American Foreign Policy Do?", in which he examines the impact COVID-19 will have on the future of global order. Inboden looks at the disruption and damage COVID-19 has caused, but also considers potential opportunities for foreign policy.
Listen now to episode 9 of Seay the Future with George Seay to get to know our esteemed Executive Director and William Powers, Jr. Chair, Dr. Will Inboden.
In "Sorry, Gen. Lloyd Austin. A Recently Retired General Should Not Be Secretary of Defense." published in the New York Times, Clements Center Senior Fellow Jim Golby argues that after a tumultuous four years, we need civilian leadership and a return to normalcy.
In this episode of Horns of a Dilemma, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) H.R. McMaster, author of the new book Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World, discusses his theories of strategic empathy and the security processes that he implemented in the Trump administration, and examines the threats posed by Russia, China, and a myriad of other actors around the world.
This wide-ranging discussion is moderated by Jim Golby, senior fellow at the Clements Center at the University of Texas at Austin.
