AUSTIN, Texas — The new University of Texas Global Challenges Initiative (UT-GCI) has established a campus-wide speaker series to explore the trends, processes and threats that will dominate 21st century international relations. Throughout the 2004-05 academic year, the UT-GCI's International Security Speaker Series will feature presentations by historians, strategists, legal scholars and policymakers. Taking a multidisciplinary approach and focusing on the intersection of policy and theory, the program will expose the UT community to fresh approaches in international security studies. LBJ School Professor Francis J. Gavin and UT Austin Department of Government Professor Peter Trubowitz are directing the series.
