Washington, DC (September 5, 2017) — American Enterprise Institute (AEI) Senior Vice President of Foreign and Defense Policy Studies Danielle Pletka announced today that the inaugural class of Jeane Kirkpatrick fellows and visiting scholars, Jessica Trisko Darden, Colin Dueck, Clay R. Fuller, and Oriana Mastro, has joined AEI’s Foreign and Defense Policy team.

The Jeane Kirkpatrick Fellows and Visiting Scholars Program was created in honor of the late Jeane Kirkpatrick, a longtime AEI senior fellow, who served as US ambassador to the United Nations under President Ronald Reagan. By identifying, training, and mentoring a new cadre of thinkers and future leaders who value freedom, a strong national defense, and American leadership in the world, the program pays tribute to Ambassador Kirkpatrick, who dedicated her career to the battle for freedom over totalitarianism.

Specifically, the Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Scholars Program offers mid-career academic, government, or civilian professionals in foreign policy and security studies the opportunity to apply their scholarly interests to the public policy realm. During the one-year appointment, scholars will collaborate with AEI’s resident scholars and fellows, engage in rigorous research, disseminate their findings, brief policymakers, and host events at the Institute.

The goal of the Jeane Kirkpatrick Fellows Program is to mentor talented foreign and defense policy scholars by offering doctoral, postdoctoral students, and junior faculty the opportunity to work alongside senior AEI resident scholars and develop and disseminate their own research over a two-year term.

“We are delighted to have such talented individuals join our foreign and defense policy team. The important research of Kirkpatrick visiting scholars and fellows will help us better understand current challenges and work toward better policies to meet them. We are also delighted that AEI scholars are eager to foster a new generation of foreign and defense policy experts,” said Danielle Pletka.
