Anne-Marie Slaughter part of 'Journal of Law and International Affairs' series

Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter presented “The Big Picture: Beyond Hot Spots and Crises in Our Interconnected World?” on March 15. Dr. Slaughter served as director of policy planning for the United States Department of State from 2009 to 2011 providing independent policy analysis and advice on global trends and strategy to the Secretary of State.

Her talk is part of a year-long lecture series on the evolving national security narrative sponsored by the Penn State Journal of Law and International Affairs. The series is designed to identify and understand the threats, responses, and accountability mechanisms that will define the future national security configuration, and to influence policymakers toward a coherent, effective strategy.

Founded in 2011, the Penn State Journal of Law and International Affairs is a joint publication of the Penn State Dickinson School of Law and School of International Affairs. Collaborating across disciplines, law and international affairs students edit essays about a variety of topics in private and international law, international relations, comparative law and politics, geography, economics, and more.
