In its first year of operations, the Strauss Center's program on Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS) has made great strides in exploring the complex relationship between the growing threat of climate change and the ability of African countries to manage emergencies, disasters and violent conflict.

The Strauss Center is currently seeking a Communications and Outreach Intern for May - August 2010 to support its outreach to potential partner institutions, donors, the media and the public.  This intern position will have a role in the overall communications work of the Strauss Center and in particular the Strauss Center's program on Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS). 

The Strauss Center is now accepting applications for the position of associate director.  The associate director assists with the Center's management and oversees daily operations.  

The Strauss Center co-hosted two important events in Washington, DC, last week, strengthening existing ties with the policy community there and developing new partnerships.

In a March 9, 2010 opinion piece for the Los Angeles Times,  Strauss Center Director Frank Gavin contends that the threat of nuclear proliferation has been overstated.  While there is cause for concern, he says, many common claims leading to worry are open to scrutiny.
