Think Tank 101 Event with Dr. Peter Singer and Dr. Nora Bensahel

From the development of the Marshall Plan to the origin of the Iraq War, think tanks play a key role in US foreign policy, both for better and for worse. They also have served as a launching pad for many careers in foreign policy. But how do think tanks work? What do they actually do? And, even most challenging, how do you tell all the various "Centers," "Institutes," and "Foundations" apart?  Join YPFP for a discussion with Dr. Peter W. Singer, bestselling author and strategist at New America, and Dr. Nora Bensahel, visiting professor of strategic studies at John Hopkins School of International Studies and contributing editor and columnist for War on the Rocks as they provide an insider's look at Washington's "ideas industry."
