Allison Stanger talked about her book One Nation Under Contract: The Outsourcing of American Power and the Future of Foreign Policy (Yale University Press; October 27, 2009). In her book she looks at the increasing use of private contractors by the U.S. government. She argues that although the outsourcing has been poorly managed and has inadvertently militarized American foreign policy, with proper oversight public-private partnerships can be valuable tools for carrying out foreign policy. Professor Stanger responded to questions from members of the audience.

On Tuesday, October 27, 2009, NAFSA: Association of International Educators hosted this installment of the Women’s Foreign Policy Group Author Series.

Allison Stanger is a professor of international politics and economics at Middlebury College and is director of the college’s Rohatyn Center for International Affairs.  close
