The annual ISSS-ISAC meeting took place October 13-14 at the School of International Service at American University. Nearly 320 scholars discussed their research on some of the most pressing issues of the day, including nuclear proliferation, the future of NATO, terrorism, civil wars, and military strategy. Participants also enjoyed keynote addresses from Robert Jervis and ISA President Ashley Leeds and panel discussions on bridging the gap between scholarship and policy and on scholarly publishing.
