"Strategic Leadership: Framework for a 21st Century National Security Strategy."

Professor of Public Policy Bruce Jentleson co-authored a report released today titled "Strategic Leadership: Framework for a 21st Century National Security Strategy.".

Among the recommended strategies are to focus more resources on Afghanistan, correct the current imbalance between force and diplomacy, and to make global poverty reduction and the building of civil society infrastructure key elements of the United States' security strategy.
