Grand Strategy

Grand Strategy can be understood as the collection of plans and policies by which the leadership of a nation mobilizes and deploys the country’s resources and capabilities, both military and non-military, to achieve its national goals. While all our universities share an interest in this issue, the hub of activities is located at Duke University.  A vibrant, interdisciplinary program was established there in 2009. It blends education and scholarship.  Through workshops, distinguished lectures, and courses, participants in AGS have the opportunity to interact with leaders from the world of policy as well as the best scholars writing on these topics today. While the target audience are Duke students who enjoy some opportunities specifically designed for them, events organized through this program are typically open to the general public.  To learn more visit DUKE’S AMERICAN GRAND STRATEGY WEB SITE!
