The atmosphere around the national elections to be held on Tuesday, 3 November, have brought to the fore many important issues of how the US military interacts and is viewed by the public and the civilian leadership in government. This seminar will cover many of those issues, shed some light on the tensions inherent in the American norms of civil-military relations, and provide a venue for open dialogue about these topics.
 
SPEAKERS:
  • Major General (Retired) Bill Rapp, Lecturer, Harvard Kennedy School
  • Dr. Heidi Urben, Adjunct Associate Professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown University.
 
A Veterans Impact Initiative event co-sponsored with the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.
