In the face of an uncertain and increasingly complex international security environment that poses an array of daunting security challenges, the United States remains the driving force for peace, prosperity, and democracy. This role demands that the country's leadership not only transform the armed forces for mission-tailored capabilities but also engage in diplomacy across the spectrum of national power to build comprehensive foreign policy solutions. The United States Army, in conjunction with the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, cosponsored through 2001 the annual Fletcher Conference to address prevailing and emerging national security issues. Seeking to expand the military's role in the national security debate, Army Chief of Staff General Eric K. Shinseki in 2002 created the Dwight D. Eisenhower National Security Series. Consisting of year-long events and culminating in the Eisenhower National Security Conference, the series has three objectives: to provide an open collegial forum for a candid exchange of views on contemporary and future national security requirements and priorities; to examine and advance ways to focus the instruments of national power more effectively; and to expose mid-level and senior Army leaders to diverse issues, institutions, and perspectives while contributing to the ongoing national security dialogue.
