Wikistrat Grand Strategy Competition - Announcing the Winning Team

With the Grand Strategy Competition coming to an end, it is time to announce the Winning Team. Of the 30+ participating teams from all around the world, we are happy to announce the Claremont Graduate University Team as the winner of Wikistrat's 2011 Grand Strategy Competition!

CGU's PhD-students demonstrated impressive analytic capabilities and continued to propose creative and provocative ideas throughout the competition, making a collaborative effort and effective use of the wiki. Using unique methodologies, CGU members constantly fed other competitors with new ways to look at geopolitical challenges, and instigated further discussions.

Playing the role of Pakistan, CGU's PhD-students were able to beat some of the world's best institutions, and won special recognition in a Time Battland post by Dr. Thomas P.M. Barnett. To get a glimpse of their work, check out their assessment of Pakistan's National Trajectory.

In addition to winning the $10,000 prize and the prestige that comes with it, the CGU team has gained important hands-on experience in strategic planning and collaborative analysis. We hope these skills, knowledge and relationships created during the competition will continue to benefit all participants in the future, as the Wikistrat community of strategic thinkers grows.

Congratulations Claremont Team!

I was very impressed with the blog entry "Rogoff's "second great contraction" and why I'm mad as hell at Washington " I wasn't clear whether it was Rogoff who's mad or Barnett. Given what a major Obama supporter you were ( I almost gave up on you some time back) I'm surprised by the realism returning with such force. Good for you.
thanks
Dick
