The Matthew Ridgway Center will host a two-day conference, Sept. 10 - 11 entitled "Containing Treat Convergence, Exploiting Threat Divergence: U.S. Strategy in Dealing with Emerging Threats" in Ballroom B of the University Club.
 
The overall purpose of the conference is to examine the notion of convergence as it becomes increasingly prominent in discussions within the Department of Defense and the Department of State, as well as the Department of Homeland Security. In recent years, the notion of threat convergence has become central to much of the national security dialogue in the United States, providing the focus for congressional hearings, an initiative by the Fund for Peace, and the theme of many academic articles.

To RSVP email, ridgwaycenter@pitt.edu

On July 16 Dean John Keeler and Professor Lou Picard hosted a dinner at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, to present Distinguished Alumnus Awards to Pandelani Thomas Mathoma (MPIA ’94, PhD 2000) and Thomas Mathukhu Mogale (PhD ’97).  Both are alumni of the School of Governance (formerly P&DM) at “Wits” and wrote their dissertations under the supervision of Picard, who played a major role in assisting with the establishment of the school in the early 1990s and has been a frequent visitor ever since.. Our dinner thus also served as a celebration of the special partnership between GSPIA and the Wits policy school, whose primary purpose since its inception has been helping to build a post-apartheid public service in South Africa and to enhance public management throughout the region.
