Education[edit]

According to Shultz' published CV, he pursued his PhD studies at Miami University, graduating in 1976. His dissertation was titled Origins and Development of U.S. Counterinsurgency Strategy: The Vietnam Case Study, chaired by David S. McLellan. He then pursued post-doctoral studies at the University of Michigan, from 1977 to 1978.[1]

Career[edit]

Shultz entered the Fletcher School and ISSP in 1983, as the associate professor of international politics. He became the director of ISSP in 1989.[2]

He is an expert and early scholar of insurgency, with his early works including influential research on guerrilla warfare in Vietnam.[3][4] He is also an expert on terrorism, intelligence gathering, internal conflicts, and low intensity conflict.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

Shultz has served on the Special Operations Policy Advisory Group of the U.S. Department of Defense, where he was the only civilian in that position.[2][12] He has also done security research and served as advisor for several U.S. civil and military organizations, and held chairs at the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval War College, and the U.S. Department of Defense.[13] He has testified in the U.S. congress.[14]

Shultz has been a member of several boards of trustees, including the Board to the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. His consultant work for the government has focused on U.S. peacekeeping policy, out-of-area interventions, counter-proliferation issues, and the growing impact of international organized crime on U.S. security interests.[11]
