Cambridge, MA – Former Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter will join the Harvard Kennedy School as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. As Secretary of Defense, Carter, a physicist, became known for pushing the Pentagon to “think outside its five-sided box” in order to transform the way the military fought adversaries and strengthened alliances, managed its budget and talent, developed its technology, and more. He will now lead the Belfer Center’s programs and will focus his scholarship on the role of innovation and technology in addressing challenges at home and around the world.
Professor Freeman teaches Administrative Law, Environmental Law and Natural Resources Law, and is Director of the Harvard Law School Environmental Law Program. Her scholarship in administrative law focuses on public-private collaboration in governance, regulatory innovation, negotiated approaches to regulation, and privatization. Her work in environmental law centers on the design of governance institutions, regulatory tools and decision making procedures; most recently, she is working on climate-related institutional design.Last Updated: Jan 6, 2017, 12:57pm
