CGD Expert Examines Development-Related Content Of Trump Administration’s National Security Strategy
Center for Global Development’s “U.S. Development Policy”: How Does Development Fare in Trump’s National Security Strategy?
Erin Collinson, senior policy associate and assistant director of the U.S. Development Policy Initiative at CGD, discusses the Trump administration’s National Security Strategy, examining the document for development-related content. Collinson concludes, “If the administration’s FY2019 request looks anything like last year’s, it will be difficult to imagine the United States truly being ready to tackle a global pandemic (a matter of when — not if), remain a leader in humanitarian response, provide meaningful assistance in fragile state contexts, or fulfill many of the strategy’s other bold promises” (12/20).
