Written by Senior Fellow and Co-Director of the Responsible Defense Program Dr. Nora Bensahel, Beyond the QDR: Key Issues Facing the National Defense Panel argues that the NDP needs to help the Department of Defense (DOD) by highlighting some of the key unanswered questions in the QDR and offer new and creative ways to implement its main principles. 
 
Dr. Bensahel argues that the NDP should focus on six critical strategic issues that the QDR did not sufficiently address. The brief concludes that the NDP will have a powerful public platform to promote bold and creative ideas that are not constrained by bureaucratic politics.
