Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Roundtable
September 20, 2017
CSIS hosted a roundtable discussion on the prospects for rationalizing the DOD’s real property assets in a strategic context. These experts from across the political spectrum and with widely divergent views on national security nevertheless agreed that some process for base closure and realignment was needed. They also discussed how any future base closure and realignment process needed to learn from the past, to be fair to the local communities, and to accommodate congressional concerns.
