About Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap promotes an informed and engaged public discourse on U.S. and global foreign policy challenges and solutions. We offer training and advocate for academics to pursue policy-relevant research and theoretically grounded policy work. Bridging the Gap simultaneously engages policymakers in the work of political scientists and scholars of international relations.


Experienced advisers don’t make up for an inexperienced president — leaders need their own foreign-policy experience...

- Elizabeth N. Saunders

  • The Washington Quarterly (Vol 39, Issue 4) features the policy-relevant writing of several Bridging the Gap scholars, including Jenna Jordan, Rupal Mehta, Lawrence Rubin, Stephen Tankel, and Rachel Whitlark!

The New Era Foreign Policy Conference (NEFP) is open to doctoral students and recent PhDs and is held in March. The International Policy Summer Institute (IPSI) is open to professors of all ranks and post-docs and is held at American University in June.
