IWP launches Frontiers, a training program in strategy and statecraft 

The Institute of World Politics is pleased to announce a new cutting-edge training initiative entitled Frontiers: Program in American Strategy and Statecraft.

Frontiers is an intensive ten-week program of luncheon meetings featuring panel speakers from IWP's faculty and other leading experts. It is designed to follow a sequence of sessions whereby an element of statecraft that is particularly timely is followed by a case study session in which that instrument is illustrated.

"Frontiers offers senior practitioners the chance to reflect on the lessons of their own professional experience in an academic environment informed by scholar-practitioners who make it their business to illuminate such lessons," comments John Lenczowski, founder and president of the Institute.
