Sam Nunn Policy Forum (2010)
The Sam Nunn Bank of America Policy Forum is a policy meeting that brings together noted academic, government, and private-sector experts on technology, public policy, and international affairs to address issues of immediate importance to the nation. It was developed from former Senator Sam Nunn’s vision of increasing understanding among policymakers, academic researchers, technologists, and citizens regarding important issues facing them. Senator Nunn is a Distinguished Professor at The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech.
The Policy Forum is open to the public and is designed to foster informed discussion of critical issues confronting the United States in the 21st century. Offering a significant venue for policy-relevant research and dialogue, the Policy Forum transcends disciplinary boundaries and engages scholars, practitioners, students, and the public. The insights and findings produced at the Forum are shared with policymakers and the broader public through congressional testimony, circulation of proceedings, policy papers, journal articles, and educational television and Internet broadcasts. The Forum connects the academic and policymaking communities to craft effective and creative responses to the critical challenges facing the nation and engages and informs interested citizens on these issues.
