Panel: A Unified Security Budget for the United States
Learn how unifying the budgets of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and State could improve the current budgetary imbalance between military and non-military security tools.
Please join keynote speaker Thomas R. Nides, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, for a discussion of the Obama administration's national security budget. Deputy Nides has been at the forefront of pushing for new, innovative budget measures for State and USAID operations.
Following Deputy Nides' remarks, featured panelists and IPS Fellow Miriam Pemberton and CAP Fellow Lawrence Korb will discuss a new report on the FY 2012 Unified Security Budget.This report argues that combining the budgets of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and State into one Unified Security Budget would enable us to rebalance our security portfolio and better protect American interests at home and abroad. CAP senior fellow Richard Verma will moderate the discussion.
