Yetter Accepted to Prestigious Cambridge International Security Program
“What’s exciting is that I will get to hear from experts in the field. That’s not something that is normally available to students,” Yetter said.
The institute is chaired by Richard Dearlove, former head of the Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), and will include seminars taught by international security researchers at the University of Cambridge and at other institutions such as the Army Cyber Institute at the United States Military Academy at West Point. A two-day conference near the end of the program will feature additional expert speakers.
Topics covered in the institute include the threats of nuclear proliferation, cyber-attack and terrorism, the impact of revolutions, intelligence collection and how it is used, counter-intelligence and covert action, and the limitations of intelligence. Institute participants will also explore a research theme through a series of “supervisions.” A supervision is a central approach to Cambridge teaching in which an expert guides a small group of students to conduct research-focused work culminating in the production of an extended essay. Yetter has yet to settle on a topic for his research project but is considering the Malayan Emergency, a counter-insurgency fought in Malaysia during the 1950s.
