The Intelligence Studies Project at UT-Austin, a joint collaboration between the Robert Strauss Center and the Clements Center, is pleased to announce that J. Paul Pope has joined our team as a Senior Fellow. Paul will serve simultaneously as a Clinical Professor on the faculty of the LBJ School of Public Affairs.

Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Joshua Busby, Senior Fellow Cullen Hendrix, and State Fragility Initiative Director Ashley Moran, recently participated in the compilation of a climate and security briefing book for the next presidential administration.

Dr. Paul D. Miller, Associate Director of the Clements Center for National Security and Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar, recently published his book, American Power and Liberal Order: A Conservative Internationalist Grand Strategy (Georgetown University Press). Dr. Miller offers a clear-eyed critique of the school of thought that argues for further U.S. retrenchment in the wake of America's ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Steve Slick, Director of the Intelligence Studies Project, contributed to The Strategy Bridge last week under its "#Monday Musings" section--a weekly series designed to get three quick, insightful thoughts from leaders in the national security arena. In Mr. Slick's contribution, he provides answers to three questions regarding his experience as an intelligence officer and an educator.

Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar William Inboden recently published a review in H-Diplo titled “The Tragedy of Academic Realism,” (Sept. 9, 2016) of Daniel Bessner and Nicolas Guilhot’s article in International Security, “How Realism Waltzed Off: Liberalism and Decisionmaking in Kenneth Waltz’s Neorealism.” Inboden is an Associate Professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, and serves as Executive Director of the Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin.
