A nation must think before it acts.
On April 18, 2012, the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI) and the Reserve Officers Association (ROA) presented a workshop of leading authorities to discuss the current state of professional military education (PME) in the United States. The education of military officers is an important element of national security decision making and civil-military relations, but much debate surrounds how to educate strategic leaders.
This workshop uses Joan Johnson-Freese’s Winter 2012 Orbis article “The Reform of Military Education: Twenty-Five Years Later” to discuss and debate the current state of PME.
