Panel Discussion at Stimson/AU Launch of Buying National Security

The Stimson Center and American University joined forces to launch Buying National Security, a unique roadmap for readers on how national security budgets come together, de-mystifying the institutions, organizations, processes and politics that support planning and resource allocation.  The joint AU/Stimson panel was moderated by Louis Goodman, Dean of the School of International Service at American University, and featured co-author of the book, Dr. Gordon Adams, Dr. Sharon Weiner, assistant professor at American University, and Dr. Julie Fischer, Senior Fellow at the Stimson Center.

Dr. Adams spoke about the necessity for such a resource, as Buying National Security is the only study of cross-government budgeting for national security that has ever been written.  Dr. Weiner addressed ad hoc interagency coordination and Dr. Fischer described the new integration of global health budgets.
