Posted October 13, 2006; 11:01 a.m.
The directors of the Princeton Project on National Security, an effort led by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs to craft a long-term strategy for U.S. national security, will discuss the project at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, in 16 Robertson Hall.
The talk, "National Security in the 21st Century," will be presented by Anne-Marie Slaughter, dean of the Wilson School, and G. John Ikenberry, the Albert Milbank Professor of Politics and International Affairs.
Slaughter and Ikenberry directed the Princeton Project, a two-year, bipartisan initiative that involved contributions from more than 400 academics, policy-makers and other leading thinkers. Their discussion will focus on the project's final report, which offers recommendations for dealing with critical issues facing the United States, including terrorism, nuclear proliferation, instability in the Middle East and East Asia, global pandemics and energy.
The report, titled "Forging a World of Liberty Under Law: U.S. National Security in the 21st Century," is available on the Princeton Project Web site. A story about the Princeton Project is available in the Princeton Weekly Bulletin.
The lecture is sponsored by the Wilson School. It is part of a series of talks planned around the country and internationally to present the Princeton Project report to policy-makers and other audiences.
