Enterprise Perspective Seminar
In the second decade of the 21st Century, American security concerns are broader and more multi-dimensional than at any other time in our nation’s history. In a world defined by regional disputes and big-power rivalries Congress and the Administration face a list of daunting political and military challenges—both domestic and international—that will need to be effectively addressed.
This four-day Enterprise Perspective Seminar will bring together a faculty of internationally recognized experts who, in an “off-the-record” setting, will discuss these issues and offer various perspectives on Administration policies and Congressional initiatives that will inevitably impact the Department of Defense.
