CETS-CISTP Panel Discussion on Transatlantic Perspectives on Civil-Military Relations
The Georgia Tech Center for Transatlantic Studies (CETS) and the Center for International Security, Technology, and Policy (CISTP) are jointly hosting a panel discussion on Transatlantic Perspectives on Civil-Military Relations featuring Lieutenant Colonel Thomas K. Harland, German Army, and Major Nathan M. Hubbard, U.S. Army.
