Brumley Next Generation Senior Fellow Maro Youssef recently authored the article, “Women’s Groups Take on Radicalization in Tunisia,” for Sada, an online journal published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The article discusses the role of Tunisian Women’s Associations in combatting radicalization among women, positing that while these organizations dedicate much of their time and resources to social equality, “insufficient funding and internal divides hamper their efforts.”

Jeremy Doran, senior in Government Honors & Political Communication (with a certificate in Security Studies), is a Brumley Next Generation Undergraduate Scholar at the Strauss Center. Every year, our cohort of Scholars take a research training and career preparation class through the Brumley program. Today we talk with Jeremy about what the class has been working on, his experiences as an intern with the House Homeland Security Committee, and more:

Strauss Distinguished Scholar Joshua Busby co-authored a Council on Foreign Relations blog post on “Bright Future? Fourth Annual Review of Solar Scale-Up in India,” with Sarang Shidore, which addressed the future of India’s solar sector that is trying to meet the government’s 100GW target by 2022. The authors argue that the utility-scale slowdown implies that the 2022 goals will be a stretch. Despite the growth of installed capacity from 2.5GW in 2014 to 26GW in 2018, estimates suggest India will have at most about 65GW in 2022.
