KDKA reporter Ralph Iannotti interviewed GSPIA students engaged in a joint research project with the FBI spearheaded by Associate Professor Michael Kenney. The foundation for the partnership developed out of the student working groups at the Matthew Ridgway Center for International Security Studies at GSPIA, under the leadership of Dr. Phil Williams, director of the center.  “As a policy school, GSPIA strives to give its students experience in conducting policy relevant research inside and outside the classroom,” explained Associate Professor Kenney. The students in the group work collaboratively and share a common interest in a career in intelligence and law enforcement. Read more.

GSPIA's Leadership During Crisis Podcast -- sponsored by the Center for Disaster Management and the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Forum -- posted its second episode focused on Pittsburgh's water infrastructure crisis. This episode, led by PhD student Lucy Gillespie, explores crisis leadership from several unique dimensions in asking not only how local leaders are managing Pittsburgh's recent boil water alerts, but - more importantly - what they are doing in the mid and long-term to avoid a more significant water crisis like what occurred in Flint, Michigan.

Ed serves as a senior member of the City of Los Angeles’ administrative team, focusing on services that support the city’s public safety and emergency services. He has served the City for nearly 30 years.

Reaching Beyond Pittsburgh

Featured Publication

By Shanti Gamper-Rabindran

The US shale boom and efforts by other countries to exploit their shale resources could reshape energy and environmental landscapes across the world. But how might those landscapes change? Will countries with significant physical reserves try to exploit them? Will they protect or harm local communities and the global climate? Will the benefits be shared or retained by powerful interests? And how will these decisions be made? In the book, GSPIA associate professor Shanti Gamper-Rabindran brings together experts working at the forefront of shale gas issues on four continents to explain how countries reach their decisions on shale development.
