Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Hertog Program in Grand Strategy

Hertog Program in Grand Strategy

Established in 2009, the Hertog Program in Grand Strategy is a unique endeavor between Temple University’s Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy and the Foreign Policy Research Institute. This program is composed of three components: research, publication, and education. The Consortium on Grand Strategy will provide a distinctive intellectual community for the presentation and vetting of innovative research in the study of grand strategy. The Hertog Program in Grand Strategy’s e-mail newsletter, The Telegram, will disseminate the condensed-length versions of this research to a wider scholarly and policy-interested audience and the Foreign Policy Research Institute’s journal, Orbis, will frequently carry the full-length pieces. In addition to these events, Temple University will roll out in the spring 2010 semester a seminar for advanced undergraduate and graduate students entitled “Grand Strategy: History and Policy” to help educate the next generation of leaders who can apply historical training to contemporary international challenges. Students from the seminar will participate in the first portion of Consortium programs starting in the spring. Professors Richard Immerman and Vladislav Zubok are co-directors of the Hertog Program in Grand Strategy; FPRI Senior Fellow Michael Noonan is coordinator of the Consortium on Grand Strategy.
