ISP Senior Fellow Contributes to LBJ School’s Policy Toolkit

Dec 11, 2020

Professor Paul Pope, a Senior Fellow with ISP, recently published an essay "Intelligence Lessons From COVID: Being ‘Right’ Is Not Enough" as part of the LBJ School’s “policy toolkit” on resiliency. In the essay, Professor Pope evaluates COVID as a potential intelligence failure and challenges the utility of the traditional “Intelligence Cycle” in assessing the performance of the intelligence community in warning of impending threats.


Twenty-nine LBJ School authors came together to craft interdisciplinary and resilience-based policy solutions, published in a toolkit called Resiliency in the Age of COVID-19. This toolkit comes as researchers from across The University of Texas at Austin continue to offer first-of-its-kind groundbreaking research and discovery in the fight against COVID and its long-lasting impacts on public health, business and the future of governance.
