WASHINGTON – The Atlantic Council is pleased to welcome James Hasik, a new senior fellow for defense with the Atlantic Council's Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. In this capacity, Mr. Hasik will be responsible for research and analysis on the transatlantic defense industry, defense-industrial policy, military procurement, and the role of emerging technologies in international security.

Mr. Hasik will amplify the core work of the Scowcroft Center’s Emerging Defense Challenges practice, which focuses on restructuring defense industrial resources for the 21st century.

"I am delighted the Scowcroft Center can associate itself with Jim’s expertise and analytical capacity at a time when the twin pressures of austerity and rapidly emerging technologies are putting unprecedented challenges on the defense industry in the United States and Europe," said Barry Pavel, Atlantic Council vice president and Scowcroft Center director. 

With more than fifty consulting projects throughout his career, Mr. Hasik brings unique experience researching and writing about global security challenges and the economic enterprises that provide the tools to address them. He is currently a William Powers Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin, where he is a PhD student in public policy at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, concentrating on military-industrial matters. Read his full bio here
