International Security Program Fellow Jeffrey G. Karam Wins the Christopher Andrew–Michael Handel Prize

| Dec. 19, 2017

Jeffrey G. Karam, a postdoctoral research fellow with the International Security Program, is the winner of the Christopher Andrew–Michael Handel Prize for the best article published in the journal Intelligence and National Security during 2017.

Dr. Karam's article, "Missing Revolution: The American Intelligence Failure in Iraq, 1958," which appeared in the October 2017 issue, is an account of an under-studied example of U.S. intelligence failure. According to the journal's editors, Loch K. Johnson and Mark Phythian:

"It combines historical and social science approaches to provide an explanation for the failure to anticipate events in Iraq in 1958 and suggests lessons that can inform broader debates about the nature of intelligence failure and how it might be prevented. As such, it makes a very useful contribution to the literature on intelligence failure which others are sure to draw on in future work."

The prize will be presented at the 2018 annual meeting of the International Studies Association, to be held in San Francisco in April 2018.
