Government Dean Joins International Security Organization

| April 5, 2013

Dr. Eric Patterson, dean of the Robertson School of Government

Regent University's Robertson School of Government dean, Dr. Eric Patterson, was selected for membership in the prestigious International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in March. The world's two elite foreign policy membership organizations are the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the IISS. Patterson is already a term member of the CFR, and this invitation to IISS reaffirms his position as a leading expert in the field.

"I feel very fortunate to have been contacted by IISS and to have been accepted to membership," said Patterson. "I have used their superb resources routinely in the past to inform my own work, and I look forward to opportunities to engage with other IISS members."

The IISS (www.iiss.org) is a world-leading authority on global security, political risk and military conflict. The IISS was founded in the UK in 1958 with a focus on nuclear deterrence and arms control. Today, it is also renowned for its annual Military Balance assessment of countries' armed forces and for its high-powered security summits, including the Shangri-La Dialogue.

Headquartered in London, the IISS also has offices in Washington D.C., Singapore, and Manama, Bahrain. The IISS is a non-partisan organization, independent of government and other bodies. Its mission is to promote the adoption of sound policies to further global peace and security and maintain civilized international relations. IISS membership is invitation-only and individual membership is capped at 4,000 individual members worldwide; currently 100 countries around the globe are represented in IISS.
