The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University will host “Commanding the Commons in the Early 21st Century” from November 29 to 30 at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center.

The event will provide a reassessment of America’s control of the global maritime commons and a look ahead at the emerging strategic challenges confronting the U.S. in the early 21st century.

The conference is inspired by MIT Professor Barry Posen’s seminal article “Command of the Commons: The Military Foundations of U.S. Hegemony,” published in International Security in 2003.  Posen will provide a keynote address on the first night of the conference at a dinner hosted at the Cavalry Court Hotel in College Station. Texas A&M Provost Karan Watson, Vice-Provost Michael Benefik, and Bush School Dean Mark Welsh will address the conference. 

The conference is being co-organized by the Bush School and the University of Haifa’s Research Center for Maritime Strategy and will feature these panels:

  • Command of the Commons—A Reassessment
  • Mediterranean/Middle Eastern Challenges
  • A New Region of Contestation? The High North
  • East Asia: The Impact of China’s Rise
  • The Role of the Commons in Future U.S. Grand Strategy

Registration is required and can be completed at http://bush.tamu.edu/commanding-the-commons/.
