Professional Experience

Christopher C. Harmon wrote his political science dissertation on terrorism in the early 1980s and continued that work as Legislative Aide for Foreign Policy to a member of Congress and, much later, director of counterterrorism studies programs in Asia and Europe for the U.S. government.

A professor at civilian and military graduate schools including the Naval War College, Dr. Harmon began teaching courses at The Institute of World Politics after 9/11 — on terrorism, and later on counterterrorism.

Lead author or editor of six books, he formerly held the Bren Chair of Great Power Competition at Marine Corps University, Quantico VA. He now serves as Distinguished Fellow at the Brute Krulak Center for Innovation and Future Warfare at Marine Corps University.
