Water Thieves or Political Catalysts? Joint Article by Former NSA Student and Professor Baylouny

March 13, 2018

NSA Professor Anne Marie Baylouny and former NSA student LT Steve Klingseis have written a joint article titled, “Water Thieves or Political Catalysts? Syrian Refugees in Jordan and Lebanon,” which has just been published in the spring 2018 edition of the Middle East Policy. In the article, they discuss the water crisis in Lebanon and Jordan, which has been exacerbated by the influx of a huge number of Syrian refugees. The authors caution about the consequences of inaction regarding the water crisis, noting “water is not a luxury, and its lack holds long-term implications for health, sanitation, development and social movements.”  

LT Klingseis has graduated from Naval Postgraduate School and will soon be attending Department Head School at the Surface Warfare Officers School in Newport, RI. Previously, he taught navigation, seamanship, and ship handling.
