From my vantage point…there’s been a growing role and place for USAID in policy discussions.

A BETTER PEACE welcomes Brad Arsenault, Alexious Butler and Leigh Caraher to the studio to explain the great works of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID.) The three join Podcast Editor Ron Granieri to discuss how USAID measures success, works with other government agencies and their level of inclusion in U.S. international affairs.


Brad Arsenault is a Foreign Service Officer with USAID and a current student at the U.S. Army War College. Alexious Butler is a Foreign Service Officer with USAID and a current student at the U.S. Army War College. Professor Leigh Caraher is a Professor of Communicative Arts in the U.S. Army War College Applied Communication and Learning Lab. She previously served as a Humanitarian Assistance Advisor to the Military at USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, where she served as the lead advisor to the U.S. Africa Command and its components. Ron Granieri is an Associate Professor of History at the U.S. Army War College and the Editor of A BETTER PEACE. The views expressed in this presentation are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Army War College, U.S. Army, or Department of Defense.
