Study Of The United States Institute On
U.S. National Security Policymaking 2018
The United States Embassy in Armenia is pleased to announce the Study of the United States Institute on U.S. National Security Policymaking. The program will provide a group of 18 scholars and professionals from all over the world with an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the foundations of U.S. national security policy and current threats facing the U.S. The institute focuses on the formulation of U.S. foreign and national security policy and the role of the federal government, think-tanks, media, and public opinion in shaping that policy. The program will examine the question of how we discern U.S. national security policy continuities and changes that shape the policies and conduct of presidential administrations. The Institute will encourage intellectual engagement, reflection, and interaction with U.S.-based experts to deepen scholar knowledge of the foundations and formulation of U.S. national security policy. The program utilizes a cross-cutting secondary theme titled, “the institutions and processes of national security policymaking” and focuses on four interconnected modules: 1) The U.S. view of the world and its place in the global system; 2) Terrorism and national security in the U.S. and abroad; 3) U.S. immigration and refugee policies; and 4) The search for the right balance between unilateralism and multilateralism. Each week, scholars will participate in academic sessions, roundtable discussions with U.S. national security experts, and conversations with the broader Newark, Delaware community on key thematic topics. The Institute participants will also travel to San Antonio and Austin, Texas, as well as New York City, Washington D.C., and other regional locales. The program's ultimate goal is to promote the development and improvement of courses and teaching about the United States at universities and other educational, training, and research institutions abroad. The program will take place from January 4 to February 16, 2018 at the University of Delaware in Newark, DE.
The U.S. Government will cover all institute costs, i.e. international travel and allowances; domestic travel and ground transportation; book, cultural, mailing and incidental allowances; admissions; housing and subsistence.
