What kind of public policy approaches would be most effective in solving such Intermarium problems as the Ukrainian crisis or the aftermath of the Smolensk Plane Crash? The lecture is designed to afford the participants a basic public policy tool set that one might apply in analyzing any number of particular topics of geopolitical/geostrategic importance. It will establish a base level of commonality surrounding the general framework others might use to preform analysis on any number of particular topics, subsequently making peer review much easier.

The lecture will include three specific elements. First, the speaker will outline global socioeconomic and technological trends that define the environment within which actors operate, and which subsequently policy analysis would almost assuredly have to include. Then, a basic public policy framework shall be presented that one might apply when thinking about developing public policy approaches to address any number of particular topics. Finally, the lecturer will run through the broad gamut of potential policy approaches one might include in developing a public policy approach to resolve any number of national security challenges posed by issues of national and international importance.
