Former Sen. Lugar Launches New Think Tank

Former Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) has just launched a new think tank in Washington, DC called the The Lugar Center (TLC). The Center will focus on three main areas:
  • WMD Security
  • Global Food Security
  • Aid Effectiveness

Here is what The Cable's Josh Rogin reports about TLC:
The center will employ full-time policy experts to formulate proposals and communicate them to policymakers both in the executive branch and on Capitol Hill. The center will also place fellows and interns in congressional offices to help push Lugar's work forward.

In January 2013, Lugar was appointed as Counselor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

In December 2012, it was reported that Lugar would join the German Marshall Fund (GMF).

Here is a Think Tank Watch post from May 2012 speculating about Lugar's think tank land options.
