Catholic University Establishes Center for the Study of Statesmanship

The Catholic University of America this month established the Center for the Study of Statesmanship, led by professor of politics Claes G. Ryn.

The new center will look at issues of foreign relations – including military strategy, trade relations, and diplomacy – from a perspective grounded in American Constitutionalism, morality, and ethics. It will promote research, education, and discussion about the importance of statesmanship in fostering relationships with other countries.
