The Summer 2011 issue of the Belfer Center newsletter features recent and upcoming activities, research, and analysis by members of the Center community on critical global issues. This edition highlights analysis and advice by Belfer Center scholars regarding the historic upheavals in the Middle East and the disastrous consequences of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The Center’s new Geopolitics of Energy project is also highlighted, along with efforts by the Project on Managing the Atom to strengthen nuclear export rules. Also in this newsletter, Center board member Lawrence Summers discusses the economy as he returns to Harvard – and we spotlight the influential public servant and Center International Council member Paul Volcker, who until recently chaired President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board.
