The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law
<> at
the University of Texas at Austin was founded to fulfill the legacy of
its remarkable namesake by bridging the divides between academia,
government, and the private sector and by integrating an array of
disciplines, including law, history, political science, technology, and
economics. It does so in service of its mission to develop non-partisan,
policy-relevant insights and solutions for the most pressing
international security challenges of the 21st century.

/The William P. Clements Jr. Center for History, Strategy & Statecraft
<> /at
the University of Texas at Austin seeks to bring the insights of the
past to national security policy through teaching and research at the
intersection of history, strategy, and statecraft. It is a non-partisan
center whose primary focus is on the uses of history by national
security leaders and scholars, and its larger hope is to produce
insights and habits that can help other leaders in the private sector,
and help strengthen citizenship more broadly. It is committed to
policy-relevant scholarship that addresses the most important strategic
issues facing our nation today and in the coming decades. The Clements
Center will honor the legacy of its namesake and bequeath it to the next
generation of leaders.

This conference is part of the Intelligence Studies Project
a joint initiative of the Clements and Strauss Centers that seeks to
improve understanding of the U.S. Government's Intelligence Community
and similar institutions in service of other states—and, in some
instances, in service of no state at all.
