John Dale Grover writes on grand strategy and why other countries do what they do, specializing on Russia/Ukraine and China/the Koreas. Currently, he is an Assistant Managing Editor for the National Interest and a Fellow at Defense Priorities. He is also a writer for Young Voices and does freelance writing. His articles have appeared in Forbes, RealClearDefense, The National Interest, Fox News, The American Conservative, The Kyiv Post, The EUobserver, and The Eurasia Review, among others. Formerly he was a Non-Resident Fellow at the Center for the National Interest and Research Assistant for George Mason’s Genocide Prevention Program.

Grover tries to understand foreign powers and then uses that to help advance a world that is more prosperous and peaceful- both for the benefit of the United States and everyone else. He believes in both deterrence and diplomacy. He is originally from San Antonio, Texas and earned a BA in Government & Legal Studies (concentration in International Relations and Comparative Government) from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. Currently, he is a graduate student at George Mason University’s School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution. Grover identifies mostly with the realist school of international relations (both the traditional and structural) and likes to combine international relations and conflict resolution theories. When Grover is not researching, he is putting what he has learned to use by publishing op-eds, writing academic papers, and by discussing US policy with others in interviews.
