Conley is most known for developing the acclaimed Kremlin Playbook series, a dedicated research project that examined the doctrine and methodology of Russia malign behavior across Europe. She spent 12 years at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), where she most recently served as senior vice president for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic. Conley frequently appears as a foreign policy analyst and Europe expert on CNN, MSNBC, BBC, NPR, and PBS, among other prominent media outlets.

Letter from the Executive Director

There is a tangible new energy on campus at the beginning of the semester. You can feel the hope and trepidation of Colby’s largest incoming class ever. We are masking up, testing regularly, and navigating how to move forward with the current stage of the pandemic and the perpetual state of uncertainty that has become the norm. We are also already tackling big conversations.
