In their book, Maxwell School faculty members Stuart Brown and Margaret Hermann examine 80 safe havens across the globe from which transnational criminal, insurgent and terrorist organizations operate—areas they term “black spots” because, like the black holes in astronomy that defy the laws of Newtonian physics, these spots defy our notions of sovereignty and the Westphalian state system.

I am Maxwell.
As a proficient speaker of German, Jen Proch was thrilled to discover the Maxwell School’s Atlantis Program, in which students can earn master’s degrees from both Maxwell and the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. “My internship at the Council of Europe confirmed how much I enjoy research and writing.
