James Kunder, MFAN executive committee member and affiliated expert with the Lugar Center, discusses the White House’s recently released National Security Strategy and suggests ways the international development community can use the document. Kunder writes, “[T]here is no absence of raw material in this new National Security Strategy on which supporters of foreign assistance can engage, educate, advocate, and connect critically related dots. There is also plenty of material in the document to suggest that we would avoid such engagement at our peril and that of many of the world’s poor and marginalized” (1/25).
