Political Science Professor Michael Desch has been appointed director of the Notre Dame International Security Center.
“This is both a tremendous honor and a daunting challenge,” Desch said. “My colleagues and I have made much progress since 2008 in building NDISC into a leading center for international security studies. But our challenge now is to take it to the next level in terms of both the scope of our programming as well as its impact on campus and in the academic and policy communities more broadly.”
Desch, who was previously co-director of the center, is a noted expert on international relations, American foreign policy, and international security. His commentary has recently appeared on CNBC.com, FoxNews.com, and CNN.com.
