This person is no longer with the Carnegie Endowment.

P. J. Simmons directed the Managing Global Issues at Carnegie from 1997-2002. The project identified lessons learned from attempts by the international community to manage a wide range of global issues, including environment, weapons proliferation, organized crime, terrorism, trade, and the Internet.  Findings were published in Managing Global Issues: Lessons Learned and Global Challenges: Beating the Odds (Policy Brief).

Prior to joining the Endowment, Simmons was the founding director of the Woodrow Wilson Center's Environmental Change and Security Project. He previously worked at the National Security Council’s Global Environmental Affairs Directorate and at the National Security Archive.

Mr. Simmons holds degrees in political science and international relations from Tufts University (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and the Johns Hopkins Nitze School of Advanced International Studies. He was a Fulbright scholar in Belgrade, Yugoslavia and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. His article, “Learning to Live With NGOs,” appeared in the Fall 1998 issue of Foreign Policy, and he recently contributed a chapter to The New Security Agenda: A Global Survey.

Simmons now is Project Director and Special Advisor at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, where he led the effort to create a practical guide for foreign policy experts and advocates to communicate with the American public: U.S. in the World: Talking Global Issues--A Practical Guide, available at www.usintheworld.org.
