State Department grant awarded to the Moynihan Institute
The Moynihan Institute has
received a one-year grant from Secretary's Office of Global Partnerships in the
Department of State to conduct to conduct and evaluation of its role in
creating and launching the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC). GACC,
one of the State Department’s flagship initiatives, seeks to leverage
public-private partnerships to support a global market for clean and efficient
household cooking methods and technologies. Its goal is to enable 100 million
homes to adopt clean and efficient cooking solutions by 2020. The evaluation will determine whether or not
the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships efforts toward the establishment
of GACC can serve as a template for other State Department initiatives that
seek to develop, deploy, and leverage sustainable public-private partnerships
which advance U.S. foreign policy objectives. Bruce W. Dayton, the Associate
Director of the Moynihan Institute, is the Principle Investigator for the
NSF Funds QDR Project
Maxwell School receives $1 million Carnegie Grant
The Carnegie Corporation of New York has named Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs as one of five institutional recipients of $1 million, two-year grants through its initiative “Rigor and Relevance: Bridging the Academic-Policy Gap.” With this funding, the Maxwell School will create the “Carnegie International Policy Scholars Consortium and Network,” which will bring together faculty from a number of top international relations graduate programs to teach and mentor students, scholars, and policymakers about ways to prepare graduate students for successful careers in both policymaking and academia – and thus to foster enhanced interaction between the two communities. This new grant will be managed through the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School, and will be co-led by Steinberg; Margaret Hermann, Gerald and Daphna Cramer Professor of Global Affairs and Director of the Moynihan Institute; and Francis J. Gavin, Frank Stanton Chair in Nuclear Security Policy Studies and Professor of Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Read more. .
The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs is hosting what promises to be an inside look at the region, the crises and the foreign policy strategies in the Middle East!
Mehrzad Boroujerdi, Chair of the Political Science Department at Syracuse University, describes Dr. Gordon as one of the most astute analyst of Middle Eastern affairs. “He has not been afraid to think outside the box. For example, he has argued that the U.S. should rethink its position that President Assad must step down. Gordon’s voice is one that needs to be heard as the U.S. government confronts a multitude of crisis from Afghanistan to Libya.”
