What is Praemon?
["prā-e-mŭn”: from Latin for premonition, forewarning, or intuition]
U.S. national security depends on the timely accuracy of skilled analysts. They are the link between intelligence and policy. America has a continuing need for the brightest minds and most innovative thinkers to turn news into action and information into decision.
This ability is rare. It requires study, technical proficiency, and an intuition only developed through involvement.
Praemon is a forum for some of Brigham Young University’s most promising students of Political Science, Area Studies, Geography, History, and International Relations to acquire the skills of professional analysts. We choose student contributors who are well informed, insightful, and dedicated to national service. These are the nation’s future leaders. Praemon offers you their analyses, forecasts, and policy suggestions regarding issues of U.S. national security.
