For the Common Defense study group at HKS
Our National Security Fellows are coordinating "For the Common Defense," a weekly study group co-sponsored by The National Security Program and the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. Topics include a variety of national security-related issues that address the role of the US military and intelligence community in our changing security environment. This study group is held every Tuesday this semester from 4:15-5:30pm in the HKS Belfer Library (Littauer Bldg., Room 369). We thought your undergraduate and graduate students might be interested.
Our next study group takes place Tuesday, March 11 at 4:15 pm. The Harvard Kennedy School Armed Forces Committee is hosting a Veterans Roundtable. Six students from Master in Public Policy Program will tell their stories of wartime military service. Moderated by Julia Stern, founder of The Service Project, this discussion will cover topics such as their reasons for joining the military, common assumptions and stereotypes people make about military service, as well as personal anecdotes from combat, overseas deployments and military life.
Future study groups include:
