The Stimson Center is pleased to announce the
appointment of two new board members, Ambassador Kenneth C. Brill and Kathleen
Newland. Stimson’s Chairman, Ambassador Lincoln Bloomfield, Jr., and President
Ellen Laipson welcome the two new trustees, whose deep expertise on a range of
transnational issues – from nonproliferation and environment to migration and
development – will strengthen and enhance Stimson’s research and impact on
these critical 21st century security challenges.

The new members:

Ambassador Kenneth C. Brill completed a 35-year career in the
US Foreign Service in April 2010.  In his final Foreign Service
assignment, he was the founding director of the US National
Counterproliferation Center (NCPC), part of the office of the director of
National Intelligence. Ambassador Brill served as NCPC’s director for five
years. After, he served as president of the Fund for Peace from November 1,
2010 to October 31, 2011. Ambassador Brill has written and spoken on the
subjects of the nuclear nonproliferation regime, countering the proliferation
of weapons of mass destruction, the challenges of WMD terrorism, the
environment as a national security issue and US intelligence reform.

Kathleen Newland is co-founder of the Migration Policy
Institute and directs MPI’s programs on Migrants, Migration, and Development
and Comprehensive Protection for Refugees. Her work focuses on the relationship
between migration and development, governance of international migration, and
refugee protection. Previously, at the Carnegie Endowment for International
Peace, she was a senior associate and then co-director of the International
Migration Policy Program (1994-2001). She sits on the Board of the
International Rescue Committee, and is a Chair Emerita of the Women’s
Commission for Refugee Women and Children. She is also on the Board of the
Foundation for the Hague Process on Migrants and Refugees and Kids in Need of
