New Cyber Security Research

CLS Welcomes Michael Hanna as an Adjunct Senior Fellow

NEW YORK – June 22, 2015 -- The politics of the Middle East are of great importance to the United States and its allies.  And many of the most significant legal questions relevant to the Center's mission--whether they are about the ways in which we may counter the rise of terrorist groups like ISIS; the regional impact of negotiations regarding the Iranian nuclear program; or the ongoing state of democratic transitions--arise from the strategic context of the region.

To help the Center navigate these issues, we are excited to welcome Michael Hanna, a scholar whose work focuses on international security, international law, and U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia, as an Adjunct Senior Fellow.  Michael, also a Senior Fellow at the Century Foundation and an alumnus of NYU School of Law, will be indispensable in elevating the discourse on these issues within the NYU community and beyond.
