An academic, foreign policy analyst, and public commentator through the old and new media, Slaughter served as Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. State Department from January 2009 until February 2011. She is currently the Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University.
