Kimberly Marten in the New Republic

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Kimberly Marten, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Political Science at Barnard College; Director, Harriman Institute Program on U.S.-Russia Relations, was supposed to work for the U.S. government as a Council on Foreign Relations fellow this year. Though she was offered a position from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, to help advise on negotiations with Russia in the U.N. Security Council, and passed her security clearance in May, the offer was withdrawn in August because the "front office" at the State Department would not sign off on it. Marten offers her policy prescription for digital détente with Russia in the New Republic
