"Ms. Hunt and seven other GSPM students spent their first week of August in Istanbul, where they met with high-powered decision makers in an examination of advocacy in the Turkish Republic. The global perspectives residency is one of a series GSPM Director Mark Kennedy has led since arriving at the George Washington University in 2012. Those trips have led to the creation of a new master's program, Advocacy in the Global Environment, which includes immersion residencies similar to the stand-alone trips currently offered."

As Ukraine Heats Up, America Must Take the Lead
Foreign Policy Opinion Piece
July 18, 2014
At the beginning of the last century, President Theodore Roosevelt launched the United States onto the world stage with the call to "speak softly and carry a big stick." President George W. Bush perhaps forgot the part about speaking softly. President Barack Obama appears to have misplaced the stick.
In an overreaction to what many viewed as an excessively aggressive stance, we are clearly seeing the costs of believing that America can step back and have someone else pick up the slack. As Winston Churchill observed, "When the eagles are silent, the parrots begin to jabber."
As the world heats up, it is time for America to step up.
