PAST EVENT

The Propaganda Cartel—Extra-Governmental Organizations and the Cold-War Consensus

Brown Bag Lunch
Series: International Security Brown Bag Seminar
Open to the Public - Belfer Center Library, Littauer-369
January 23, 2014
12:15-2:00 p.m.

Speaker: Chad Levinson, Research Fellow, International Security Program

Related Project: International Security

Description:

What are the sources of interest group influence in the politics of U.S. security policy? What causes some groups to thrive and others falter? This seminar offers a theory that influence derives from the distribution of relevant information, the preferences of White House occupants, and public beliefs about the credibility of political actors. The presentation will explore the consequences of this proposition, specifically the emergence of a concentrated group of extra-governmental propaganda organizations that helped forge the Cold-War consensus and build a civilian national security policy apparatus within the Executive.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
