A New National Security Strategy in an Age of Terrorists, Tyrants, and Weapons of Mass Destruction
OSI's Cooperative Global Engagement Project, in collaboration with the United Nations Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, funded a Council on Foreign Relations study that examines the current national security strategy as well as alternative ways to address the threats facing the United States.
The paper, one in a series of Council Policy Initiatives, offers three approaches to national security policy in the form of presidential speeches. The study is being used as the basis for debates over the 2003 summer in Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston. OSI-Washington, D.C. and the report's other two funders have adapted the material for use by college students in holding their own debates on national security policy.
