President, International Peace & Security Institute  President and Founder of the International Peace & Security Institute (IPSI), an international nongovernmental organization dedicated to training leaders in the peace and security fields to be ready for the challenges that confront them in the real world.  IPSI curricula are designed to be rigorous, substantive learning experiences that provide trainees with the tools they need to make peace reality. Cameron also works with large-scale institutions, governments, and multilateral organizations to develop policies and procedures on best leadership and peacebuilding practices, then designs high-impact tailored training materials (both face-to-face and online) to operationalize that vision. Providing the strategic leadership for IPSI, he built and maintains a high-level Board of Directors and Board of Advisors consisting of the conflict field’s elite theoreticians and practitioners; he is in constant communication with Boards to remain on the cutting edge of thought and practice in the field, then translates that into high-impact adult education structures. Cameron is Chief Editor of the "Peace & Security Report," a weekly free e-publication that provides executive style briefs on global peace and security news; in its 5th year, the publication has an estimated global readership of between 40-60k per week. Before founding IPSI, Cameron worked with the World Bank, CEWARN, the U.S. Department of State, and The Carter Center.  He has a B.A. from Emory University and a M.A. from the University of Bradford, UK.  Cameron is an adjunct professor at the George Washington University and Georgetown University; he is a Rotary World Peace Fellow Alumnus.  Cameron was named as one of the 2012 "top 99 under 33" most influential foreign policy professionals and is a Fellow at the Truman National Security Project.
