A New Strategy for the USDFC: Supporting Development and National Security

Grant Year: 2019

Daniel Runde will explore how the promotion of global private-sector development can advance U.S. national security objectives. He will conduct research trips to the Philippines, Tunisia, and Guatemala and convene a series of roundtables in order to explore how the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation might best counter China’s rising influence, stem the appeal of Islamist radicalism, and reduce forced migration. The project’s findings will be presented in a report.
