Public dialogue based on state-of-the-art scholarship is critical in so many areas of civic life, and it is particularly vital when it comes to military policy. As one of the largest employers in the world, and certainly the country, US military policies have far reaching effects. We are looking forward to bringing some solid research to this topic in the coming months.
