Our democracy, built on the foundation of the Constitution, demands open and rigorous debate, particularly when it comes to how we protect our individual and collective security and advance our fundamental values and human rights in the world. The Center not only shapes the conversation, but drives it. Our faculty and adjuncts publish scholarly books and articles regularly, and the Center publishes the Journal of National Security Law & Policy, the only peer reviewed journal dedicated to national security law and policy.
We are now launching the National Security 360 Forum, a multi-disciplinary forum where diverse experts, practitioners, and leaders will grapple with the complex problems our 360 Incubator is tackling.
