Modern War Institute at West Point introduces Foreign Policy Speaker Series
Over the past year, GPD, has worked to develop points of collaboration with the Charles Koch Foundation which resulted in the Koch Foundation Foreign Policy Speaker Series which will be hosted by GPD’s grant partners, Modern War Institute at West Point (MWI) and the Center for Study of Civil-Military Operations at West Point (CSCMO). The Series will feature several guest speakers per semester, along with a distinguished leaders panel and will provide focused consideration of the theories, positions, and important questions posed by top foreign policy experts, and also analyze the rationale behind US policy in the Middle East, Russia, North Korea, and China. The series will address topics such as the duration of conflicts in relation to the costs and benefits to the United States and its diplomatic allies.
The MWI Speaker Series expands cadet and faculty access to distinguished senior military, policy, and academic leaders while giving these leaders the opportunity to contribute to the intellectual development of cadets at West Point. Each event will be recorded on video and audio and will be made available on MWI’s YouTube channel and website to further the event’s reach and impact.
