Description:The Strauss Center invites you to "Predicting the Future: Global Trends and Challenges," with Mathew Burrows, director, analysis and production staff, National Intelligence Council (NIC). Lunch provided. Burrows will discuss the process of strategic forecasting and producing the intelligence community's (IC) landmark "Global Trends" studies on the future of the world, how academic research can be of use to policy-makers and intelligence analysts and personal reflections on the late Richard Holbrooke, whom he served as special assistant (1999-2001). He will be available following the talk to discuss possible careers in the IC with interested students.

A 25-year veteran of the CIA, Burrows is responsible for managing a staff of senior analysts and production technicians who guide and shepherd all NIC products from inception to dissemination.
