War, Terrorism, and National Security in the 2012 Elections
June 13, 2012
David Schanzer, Associate Professor of the Practice, Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University and Adjunct Associate Professor, in UNC’s Peace, War and Defense Curriculum
National security is the primary responsibility of all presidents – making national security a central issue in every presidential campaign. Although economic concerns are currently dominating political discourse, concerns over national security will loom large over the 2012 campaign. This lecture will examine the candidates’ overall approaches to national security and address specific issues such as the war in Afghanistan, debate over Iran’s nuclear program, the Arab uprisings, and relations with China.
