After months of frantic brinkmanship with North Korea, reports say President Donald Trump is now preparing for a summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. This would be comical if it weren’t so dangerous, says Robert Hutchings.
Kim is playing a clever game of jiu jitsu diplomacy, turning the momentum of Trump’s saber-rattling back on him to achieve key North Korean goals, says Robert Hutchings.
Innovation Bound - the annual celebration of LBJ School policy research held April 30, 2018; special student poster session added to day’s research tribute
The LBJ School prides itself on contributing viable solutions to society through the public and social dialogue of our world. Throughout each year, both students and faculty undertake timely policy research to stretch intellectual boundaries and tackle the most complex problems of our day. INNOVATION BOUND celebrates the impact, quality and range of the published works of our distinguished faculty and students.
The attacks on the 'administrative state' or 'permanent government' are attacks on democracy itself, and John Bolton is Donald Trump's latest offensive, says Robert Hutchings.
How do diplomatic services around the world ensure their governments have a steady supply of the most effective professional envoys?
LBJ School students, under the guidance of LBJ Professors Robert Hutchings and Jeremi Suri, examined the practices of diplomatic services in other major countries to see what lessons could be helpful in improving the effectiveness of American diplomacy. This report is a follow up to a policy research project released in April 2017.

If anything positive can be said to emerge from the alarming revelations of Russian meddling in our presidential election, it is that the blowback seems to have forced President Donald Trump to back away from the cozy relationship he was trying to develop with Vladimir Putin. Yet we also need to avoid a dangerous slide toward confrontation. Having negotiated with Russians during my diplomatic career, I know we must deal with Russia and we need a set of guiding principles to move us forward, writes LBJ professor Robert Hutchings.
Policy Research Institute funding will grant 12 LBJ School faculty members the opportunity to pursue important research projects on complex, relevant policy issues.
LBJ School students who took part in the “Reinventing Diplomacy” policy research project, led by professors Robert Hutchings and Jeremi Suri, explored how countries have changed the way they recruit, select, prepare and train diplomats in today’s global environment.
