Eric Bailey Reports from the International Center for Terrorism Studies

M.A. Global Policy candidate, Eric Bailey ’12, has arrived in Washington, DC where he will intern for the International Center for Terrorism Studies (ICTS).  Eric has already been tasked to follow the latest news regarding threats directed at the 2012 Olympic Games. In addition to this research, he will help Professor Yonah Alexander, a Senior Fellow at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies and ICTS Director, prepare for a conference presentation in Kyrgyzstan on the topic of terrorism in Central Asia.  The conference aims to highlight recent improvements in thwarting terrorist activities in the region while also noting the continued challenges associated with such efforts – which include combating the narcotics-based industries that help finance terrorist organizations.

You can follow Eric over the course of the summer as he reflects on his experiences at SPIA Abroad, the SPIA student internship blog.  Here are links to Eric’s first three reports:
