IPS: U.S. Military Sales
Are We Getting Our Money’s Worth?

Friday, March 3, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:20 PM

Stephen Biddle, Adjunct Senior Fellow for Defense Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, is a veteran analyst of American policies and decisions in military efforts.

When he addresses the Council’s 2017 International Perspective Series on Friday, March 3, his topic is one of economics: “U.S. Military Sales: Are We Getting Our Money’s Worth?”

Biddle is not a stranger to the IPS line-up. In March 2014, his IPS topic was “National Security on a Budget: Drones or Boots?”

And he has experience in the controversial field of military funding. His 2005 book Military Power: Explaining Victory and Defeat in Modern Battle, won several prizes including the Council on Foreign Relations' Arthur Ross Award Silver Medal for 2005 and the 2005 Huntington Prize from the Harvard University Olin Institute for Strategic Studies.

Biddle, a professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University, joined the CFR in 2006 after holding the Elihu Root Chair in Military Studies at the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute. As his biography notes, he also has held teaching and research posts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Institute for Defense Analyses, Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and the Harvard Kennedy School's Office of National Security Programs.

Additionally, his biography describes him as a respected and prize-winning researcher who “was awarded the U.S. Army Superior Civilian Service Medal in 2003 and again in 2006, and was presented with the U.S. Army Commander's Award for Public Service in Baghdad in 2007. He holds an AB, MPP, and Ph.D in public policy, all from Harvard University.”
