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
