Professor Andrew Moravcsik, Executive Director Nadia Crisan, and Research Scholar Dr. Barbara Buckinx attend the launch of SPIA in D.C. initiative on May 10, 2023. A bipartisan group of speakers joined more than 250 SPIA alumni, faculty, staff, and friends at the School’s new Washington home. “The proximity of SPIA in D.C. to the center of national policymaking is a testament to the importance and necessity of boots-on-the-ground engagement in the political and policymaking realms”, Dean Jamal Amaney said in her remarks. LISD’s leadership team and International Policy Associates already gathered for a pre-opening event at the end of February and the Institute plans a number of key policy events in the upcoming academic year.
