Friday, February 24
2:00 p.m. ET
Join RNLA this Friday for a special foreign policy webinar featuring The Heritage Foundation's James Carafano and the Antonin Scalia Law School's Jamil Jaffer. They will discuss recent developments surrounding incursions on U.S. airspace by China and Russia.
James Jay Carafano, a leading expert in national security and foreign policy challenges, is the vice president of Heritage’s Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy and the E. W. Richardson Fellow. Carafano is an accomplished historian and teacher as well as a prolific writer and researcher. Before assuming responsibility for Heritage’s entire defense and foreign policy team in December 2012, Carafano had served as deputy director of the Davis Institute as well as director of its Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies since 2009. Carafano, a 25-year Army veteran with a master’s and doctorate from Georgetown University, joined Heritage in 2003 as a senior research fellow in homeland security and missile defense. Before coming to Heritage, Carafano was a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, a Washington policy institute dedicated to defense issues. In his Army career, Carafano served in Europe, Korea and the United States. His assignments included head speechwriter for the Army Chief of Staff, the service's highest-ranking officer. His recent research has focused on developing the national security required to secure the long-term interests of the United States—protecting the public, providing for economic growth and preserving civil liberties. As an expert on foreign affairs, defense, intelligence and homeland security issues, Carafano has testified many times before Congress. He is a regular guest analyst for the major U.S. network and cable television news organizations, and his op-ed columns and commentary are published widely.
