For the fourth successive year, CNAS will gather a bipartisan group of future national security leaders to participate in a series of frank and open discussions on immediate and long-term U.S. national security and foreign policy challenges with the goal of developing a shared understanding of the nation's security interests and international priorities. During the program, Next Generation Leaders will engage with influential figures in the national security field in a series of candid discussions on several of the most pressing issues facing the United States.
The program's key feature is a dinner discussion series with current and former military and civilian leaders on issues of importance to U.S. national security. Past topics have included the re-emergence of China and its implications for U.S. strategy, American interests in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Natural Security (the intersection of national security and natural resource use, energy and climate change) and the economics of national security. Participants in the Next Generation National Security Leaders Program will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of private CNAS events, off-site visits and meetings and potentially contribute to collaborative writing projects and travel internationally.
The 2012-2013 program will again be led by CNAS Non-Resident Senior Fellow and Minerva Research Fellow at the U.S. Naval Academy John Nagl, a retired armor officer in the U.S. Army and a member of the Defense Policy Board, and Steve Biegun, corporate officer and vice president of international governmental affairs for Ford Motor Company, former Executive Secretary of the National Security Council and Staff Director of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and CNAS advisory board member.
