Senior Lecturer in Public Policy


Over the past decade, new technologies have emerged as pivotal to the future of international security policy. Advances in space, artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, digital currencies, and synthetic biology bring with them complex technical, operational, geopolitical, and legal risks. The need for a new generation of technology-savvy policymakers is clear. In this course, students will gain a basic understanding of these critical emerging technologies and the risks and opportunities associated with them. Students will then develop foreign policy/national security strategies, policy options, and risk mitigation plans. This course is global in scope: international students are encouraged to enroll. The course will focus heavily on professional skills, such as strategy development, memo writing, briefing, and basic financial analysis.
