Jared Cohen Exits State, Enters Google

BY Nancy Scola | Wednesday, September 8 2010

It's official: the State Department's Jared Cohen, closely identified with the idea of "21st Century Statecraft," is indeed leaving the department's Policy Planning staff to head up a new "think/do tank" division called Google Ideas. Foreign Policy has an interview with Cohen on his next steps, and four years at State.

Cohen says that the model for Google Ideas is being built around his time at State, including the "SWAT-team model of building teams of stakeholders with different resources and perspectives to troubleshoot challenges."
