Military assistance to foreign governments is a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy. These efforts have been successful in some cases, while in others - such as Vietnam or Yemen - they have not. This workshop will feature speakers with backgrounds in academia, the military, think tanks, government and NGOs.
Panelists will analyze and discuss:
The goals of U.S. military assistance programs
Whether and where military assistance can be effective
Challenges to implementing and evaluating these programs
Ways to bridge the gap between academia and policy on this issue
