UT News recently featured the Strauss Center, Clements Center, and Intelligence Studies Project, along with their respective directors, for creating and fostering a community of national security and intelligence experts at the University of Texas.

Molly Adler, Strauss Center Brumley Fellow and dual-degree Master's candidate in Global Policy Studies at the LBJ School of Public Affairs and the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies, is currently studying the historical context of cyberwarfare and what that means for the future policy responses to these attacks. Molly is being mentored in her Brumley program research by Dr. Paul Miller, Lecturer at the LBJ School and Associate Director of the Clements Center for National Security. She details her research for us here:

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed U.S. engagement in the Western Hemisphere in a speech on UT campus on Thursday, February 1, 2018. As The Wall Street Journal reported, Secretary Tillerson’s visit marked his one-year anniversary of public service in the State Department. The event, co-hosted by the Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law and the Clements Center for National Security received local and national press coverage.

The Robert Strauss Center is excited to announce that Professors Rebecca Ingber (Boston) and Shirin Sinnar (Stanford) are the winners of the 2017 Mike Lewis Prize for National Security Law Scholarship.

Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Joshua Eisenman has released a new volume, China Steps Out, co-edited with MIT’s Eric Heginbotham. The book compiles diverse analysis of China’s foreign policy strategy in the developing world. China Steps Out is relevant to policymakers around the world and Washington, DC, where Dr. Eisenman recently testified to the U.S. China Economic and Security Review Commission about concepts in the book.
