This week, five LBJ School of Public Affairs students, including the Strauss Center's graduate student workers Ellen Scholl and Matt Deal, published an op-ed in the Austin American Statesman titled, "It's time for the U.S. to revitalize NATO." In the article, the authors argue that the U.S. and NATO's inaction in response to Russian military mobilization on the Ukranian border and seizure of control in Crimea has emboldened Putin and set a dangerous precedent.

The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security & Law is pleased to announce two important events this week pertaining to our namesake.

Last week, Strauss Center Director Bobby Chesney wrote a guest post for Intercross, the website of the International Committee of the Red Cross delegation in Washington, as part of an ICRC series on the relationship between the international laws of war and American law.

In an article in the Washington Post, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Josh Busby examines the relationship between climate change and human security, and explains that this association is much more nuanced than a simple debate over whether or not climate change could lead to conflict.

The Strauss Center is pleased to announce the recipients of its Pre-Doctoral Fellowship in Security Studies for the next academic year: Andrew Boutton of Pennsylvania State University (Political Science) and Kathleen Klaus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Political Science). The two will be in residence at the University of Texas at Austin for the 2014-15 academic year.
