GOVT 85.36 How National Security is Made

For those interested in how national security policy gets made, the course focuses on the practical knowledge and skills necessary to create and manage policy to success. It will move from an initial policy proposal to government-wide acceptance, public announcement, Congressional approval and funding, and finally implementation.  It will provide an understanding of the political, bureaucratic, and fiscal obstacles to national security policymaking as well as strategies and tactics to overcome those obstacles.  Following the study of executive and legislative processes and the uses of intelligence and the media, it will look at a series of case studies on counter-terrorism, pandemics, immigration, drug trafficking, cybersecurity, and development and end with a crisis management exercise.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
