Jeremi Suri, the Mack Brown Distinguished Chair for Leadership in Global Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin, is an expert on U.S. nation-building, modern international relations, contemporary foreign policy and protest and dissident movements.

The author of “Liberty’s Surest Guardian: American Nation-Building from the Founders to Obama,” Suri looks to America’s history to see both what it has to offer to failed states around the world and what the nation should avoid.

Suri is one of dozens of experts at the university who can speak to issues regarding the 2012 elections.
