Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. Alan Kuperman has completed his year-long tenure as a Jennings Randolph Senior Fellow at the United States Institute of Peace. The fellowship program provides scholars with funding to spend a year in residence at USIP conducting research on a project of their choosing. Dr. Kuperman's project, "Humanitarian Blowback? Lessons for Future Intervention," draws on his previous research analyzing the costs and benefits of humanitarian interventions throughout the world, including in Libya, Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda, Darfur, Liberia, and Rwanda.

In his most recent Shadow Government blog post, "Can the U.S. Embrace India, Welcome Modi, and Reject Religious Persecution?" Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. William Inboden takes on the issue of religious freedom abroad through the lens of the ongoing Indian election. Results from the election will not be finalized until later this week, but the Bharatiya Janata Party's Narendra Modi is widely expected to become the next prime minister. As Inboden notes, were that to happen, Modi would be the first elected head of state to have been denied entry to the United States through the International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA).

The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2014 William H. Crook Fellowship awards. This year's impressive cohort will be interning across the globe, with placements in Central America, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and East Asia.

Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. Alan Kuperman's research was referenced in Daveed Gartenstein-Ross's testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (U.S. House of Representatives). In his testimony, titled "Successes and Failures of the U.S. and NATO Intervention in Libya," Gartenstein-Ross agrees with Dr. Kuperman in that NATO's intervention likely prolonged the conflict and increased the total number of deaths, in addition to saving lives at Benghazi.

In his latest post on Foreign Policy's Shadow Government blog, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and Clements Center Director Will Inboden laments the absence of principles and priorities guiding the Obama Administration's approach to foreign policy. In his post, Mr. President, Leave the Strawman in Manila, Inboden argues that not only has President Obama fallen short on articulating his foreign policy, he continues to rely on flawed comparisons to avoid doing so.
