Clements Center: Ronald Reagan and the Transformation of Global Politics in the 1980s Conference

AT&T Conference Center

The Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin in association with the Strauss Center for International Security and Law, the Department of History and the Department of Government, the LBJ School of Public Affairs, and the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University, will host a 3-day conference titled "Ronald Reagan and the Transformation of Global Politics in the 1980s" in January 2017. 

This conference will bring together a group of scholars and former policy-makers to undertake a wide-ranging reassessment of U.S. foreign policy and international relations during the Reagan Administration in light of emerging archival resources and declassified documents. 

The 1980s were transformative. The global economy regained its footing after the oil shocks and stagflation of the previous decade. The rise of the so-called ‘Asian Tigers’ shifted the center of economic gravity towards the Pacific, amidst a series of democratic transitions in the region. The revolution in U.S.-Soviet relations curbed the nuclear arms race and set the tone for the end of the Cold War. The Palestinian Liberation Organization recognized the state of Israel while mujahideen fought the Soviet Army in Afghanistan with funds and weapons supplied by the United States and Pakistan. Iran and Iraq fought a prolonged, bloody war. Brutal military dictatorships fell in Brazil and Argentina, and teetered on the brink of collapse in Chile. Economic reforms in the People’s Republic of China pulled hundreds of millions out of poverty. Most momentous of all, Eastern Europe cast off Soviet rule, bringing an end to Germany and Europe’s postwar divisions and ushering in what many have called a unipolar moment for the United States.

The end of the Cold War has understandably transfixed scholars of international history and international relations. But Reagan’s imprint on history extends beyond that grand drama. His handling of U.S. relations with Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East paved the way for the triumphs and travails of the past decades and merits sustained historical attention. Without losing sight of the centrality of the Cold War, this conference will assess how Reagan and his administration conducted the full spectrum of U.S. foreign policy and the various legacies his presidency left behind for world politics.

Clements Center: Reagan at Reykjavik: Forty-Eight Hours that Ended the Cold War

AT&T Conference Center, Salons A & B

The Clements Center is honored to host Ken Adelman, former Director of Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, for a talk on his new book Reagan at Reykjavik: Forty-Eight Hours that Ended the Cold War on Thursday, January 19, at 12:30pm in Salons A and B of the AT&T Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Ken Adelman is a Renaissance man, having been a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Arms Control Director for Ronald Reagan, translator for Muhammad Ali during “The Rumble in the Jungle” in Africa, professor of Shakespeare at Georgetown University, and author of six books, most recently the critically-acclaimed Reagan at Reykjavik: Forty-Eight Hours that Ended the Cold War.  That story, of the historic superpower summit in Iceland in 1986, is being turned into an HBO feature film starring Michael Douglas as President Reagan. 

Adelman began working for the government in 1969 at the U.S. Department of Commerce, and then served in the Office of Economic Opportunity with a very young Donald Rumsfeld and even younger, 28-year-old Dick Cheney. From 1975 to 1977, he was an assistant to U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Adelman became a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and then Arms Control Director for President Reagan, accompanying him on three superpower summits with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. He served on the Defense Policy Board during the George W. Bush Administration and the Board of the National Center for Counter-Terrorism during the Barak Obama Administration.

He is currently working on a film about Reykjavik with HBO and runs “Movers & Shakespeares", an executive leadership training and communication skill program.

Strauss: Mexico's Intelligence Agencies: A Conversation with Guillermo Valdes

LBJ School - Room 3.122

Strauss: Mexico's Intelligence Agencies: A Conversation with Guillermo Valdes, former Director of Mexico's Intelligence and National Security Center (CISEN)

On January 30, 2017, the Robert Strauss Center is excited to welcome Guillermo Valdes Castellanos, former Director of Mexico's National Intelligence Agency (CISEN), and David Shedd, former Acting Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), for a conversation on "Evolving Threats and Capabilities: The Future of Mexican Intelligence Agencies".

This event is free and open to the public.

Guillermo Valdes was the Director of Mexico’s National Intelligence Agency (CISEN) between January 2007 and September 2011. As a member of Mexico’s National Security Council and the National Public Security Cabinet, his most important responsibilities included coordinating the efforts of both bodies to generate information to be used in the drafting of research, assessments, and strategic scenarios on issues contained in the national security agenda. He coordinated jointly with President Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor John Brennan the Mexico-US High-Level Consultative Group on cooperation for security. He is the author of Historia del Narcotrafico en Mexico (The History of Drug Trafficking in Mexico) (Aguilar, 2013).

Before joining the CISEN, for 13 years he directed the area of politics and opinion surveys at Grupo de Economistas y Asociados, S.C. Some of the projects he developed in that capacity included a governability analysis model for the generation of political, economic and social scenarios. He began his professional career in the public sector, where he worked in various departments of the federal government (Presidency of the Republic and the ministries of Planning and Budgets, Social Development and Public Education) primarily as an advisor to the heads of those departments and in matters of public policy design.

David Shedd served as Acting Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from August 2014 (following four years service as Deputy Director) to January 2015. As Acting Director he lead the Defense Intelligence Enterprise workforce comprised of more than 16,500 military and civilian employees worldwide. This workforce spans the Defense Intelligence Enterprise within the Department of Defense with an intelligence mission and/or function, plus all their stakeholders involved in creating, sustaining and enhancing mission capacity.

Mr. Shedd previously served from May 2007 to August 2010 as the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Deputy for Policy, Plans, and Requirements, where he was responsible for overseeing the formulation and implementation of major Intelligence Community (IC) policies across the full spectrum of issues, from information sharing and IC authorities to analytic standards, among others. In particular, he led the review of Executive Order 12333, the foundational U.S. intelligence policy, which was revised by President George W. Bush in July 2008. Additionally, Mr. Shedd developed and implemented a National Intelligence Strategy, published in August 2009 for the IC and led all strategic planning efforts to determine future intelligence priorities for the Community and the Nation.

From May 2005 to April 2007, Mr. Shedd served as Chief of Staff and, later, Acting Director of the Intelligence Staff to the Director of National Intelligence. Prior to the creation of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Mr. Shedd held intelligence policy positions at the National Security Council (NSC) from February 2001 to May 2005. He served as the NSC’s Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Intelligence Programs and Reform. Mr. Shedd has been directly involved in the implementation of intelligence reform stemming from the 9/11 Commission report in July 2004, the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, and the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Commission’s report to the President in March 2005.

From 1984 to 1993, Mr. Shedd was posted overseas in the U.S. Embassies in Costa Rica and Mexico. Mr. Shedd has also held a variety of senior management assignments at the Central Intelligence Agency, including Chief of Congressional Liaison.

CHASP & CSRD: Dr. Keramet Reiter, Author of 23/7: Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long-Term Solitary Confinement

Bass Lecture Hall

Please join the LBJ School of Public Affairs Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP) and the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy (CSRD) on Thursday, February 2, 2017 for a talk by Dr. Keramet Reiter, author of the new book "23/7: Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long-Term Solitary Confinement."
 
Reiter is an assistant professor in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society and at the School of Law at the University of California, Irvine. She has been an associate at Human Rights Watch and testified about the impacts of solitary confinement before state and federal legislators.
 
Originally meant to be brief and exceptional, solitary confinement in U.S. prisons has become long-term and common. Prisoners spend twenty-three hours a day in featureless cells, with no visitors or human contact for years on end, and they are held entirely at administrators’ discretion. Reiter tells the history of one “supermax,” California’s Pelican Bay State Prison, whose extreme conditions recently sparked a statewide hunger strike by 30,000 prisoners. In "23/7: Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long-Term Solitary Confinement", Reiter describes how Pelican Bay was created without legislative oversight, in fearful response to 1970s radicals; how easily prisoners slip into solitary; and the mental havoc and social costs of years and decades in isolation. The product of fifteen years of research in and about prisons, this book provides essential background to a subject now drawing national attention.

The presentation will be followed by a panel addressing the use of solitary confinement in Texas prisons, with LBJ School Senior Lecturer and CHASP faculty affiliate Michele Deitch and ACLU Texas Senior Policy Strategist Matthew Simpson.
 
Doors open at 5:15 PM and the presentation begins at 5:30 PM. Light snacks will be provided.

Clements Center: The Rise of ISIS and the Way Ahead in the War on Terror with Col. Peter Mansoor, former Executive Officer to General David Petraeus

Texas Union Governors Room

The Clements Center is honored to host Peter Mansoor, Professor of Military History at Ohio State University and Former Executive Officer to General David Patraeus. Dr. Mansoor will speak on the rise of ISIS and the way ahead in the war against Islamist terror groups at the Texas Governors' Room (UNB 3.116) on Wednesday, Feburary 8th, at 12:15pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Peter Mansoor, Colonel, U.S. Army (Retired), is the General Raymond E. Mason, Jr. Chair of Military History and a CNN military analyst. He assumed this position in September 2008 after a 26 year career in the U.S. Army that culminated in his service in Iraq as the executive officer to General David Petraeus, the Commanding General of Multi-National Force-Iraq, during the period of the surge in 2007-2008. He has authored a history of this experience, Surge: My Journey with General David Petraeus and the Remaking of the Iraq War, which was a finalist for the inaugural Guggenheim-Lehrman Prize in Military History in 2013.

A 1982 distinguished graduate of the United States Military Academy, Colonel Mansoor served in a variety of command and staff positions in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East during his military career, including postings with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Bliss, Texas; the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Bad Hersfeld and Fulda, Germany; with the Opposing Forces at the National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California; and as the commander of the 1st Squadron, 10th Cavalry (the “Buffalo Soldiers”) and G-3 of the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized) at Fort Hood, Texas. He also served on the Joint Staff as the special assistant to the Director for Strategic Plans and Policy during a period that included the Bosnian peace support operation, Operation Desert Fox, and the Kosovo conflict.

In the early 1990’s Colonel Mansoor attended graduate school at the Ohio State University, after which he taught military history at the United States Military Academy at West Point. During this period he authored a monograph on the combat performance of U.S. Army infantry divisions in Europe during World War II. The GI Offensive in Europe: The Triumph of American Infantry Divisions, 1941-1945 was published by the University Press of Kansas on the 55th anniversary of D-Day and was awarded the Society for Military History distinguished book award and the Army Historical Society distinguished book award in 2000.

Colonel Mansoor commanded the 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division from 2003 to 2005, including 13 months in combat in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from July 2003 to July 2004 - service for which his brigade was awarded a President Unit Citation for collective valor in combat. He has captured the essence of the experience of his brigade’s deployment and the difficulties of the U.S. war in Iraq during the crucial first year of conflict in a personal memoir, Baghdad at Sunrise: A Brigade Commander’s War in Iraq, published in September 2008 by Yale University Press. In 2009 the Ohioana Library Association honored the account as its non-fiction book of the year.

After relinquishing command, Colonel Mansoor resided at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York as a senior military fellow. He then served as the founding director of the U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where he helped to edit the counterinsurgency field manual, which was used to reshape the conduct of the Iraq War. In the fall of 2006 he also served on the Joint Chiefs of Staff Council of Colonels that reexamined the strategy for the war in Iraq.

Dr. Mansoor is a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, Phi Kappa Phi, and Phi Alpha Theta. His research interests include modern U.S. military history, World War II, the Iraq War, and counterinsurgency warfare.

CFRP is a research center directed by professor Dr. Cynthia Osborne at the LBJ School of Public Affairs.

 

The Texas Fatherhood Summit brings together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in the field of fatherhood. The theme of the 2017 Texas Fatherhood Summit is "Strengthening Services to Support Fathers". Speakers will discuss the challenges and opportunities in recruiting, providing services, and retaining fathers in programs. Experts will discuss what the research shows on how to know if programs are really working. Providers will also be able to share lessons learned with each other throughout the day.
