Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. Alan Kuperman participated in the discussion "Did the Military Intervention in Libya Succeed?" at the Cato Institute. This event commemorated the third anniversary of the launching of the air assault in Libya by the United States and allied countries. Although he concedes that perhaps it is yet too soon to make a definitive assessment, Dr. Kuperman considers that, as of now, the NATO intervention was an abysmal failure.

Earlier this week, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and UT Engineering Professor Michael Webber commented on the role LNG exports, and energy in general, are playing in the political conversation on how to punish Russian President Vladimir Putin for his aggression in Ukraine.

Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. Terri Givens participated in this year's "Women's History Month" at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her talk, "Transatlantic Perspectives on Immigration and Race Politics," addressed the different aspects surrounding political integration of immigrant communities, particularly in countries like the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. She discussed issues of race, equality, and immigration integration at the local, group, and national levels of politics.

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. Alan Kuperman argues in favor of the worldwide elimination of highly enriched uranium (H.E.U.) for reactor fuel, in order to reduce the risks of nuclear proliferation and terrorism. Titled "Highly Enriched Danger" and co-authored by Frank N. von Hippel, the piece is written in the context of this week's third biannual Nuclear Security Summit at the Hague, attended by President Obama and other 57 world leaders.
