This year marks the 10th anniversary of IDA’s Welch Award, which recognizes the best external publication by IDA researchers. The award was named for retired U.S. Air Force General Larry D. Welch, who was IDA’s president from 1990 to 2003 and again from 2006 to 2009. This summary is the first in a series reflecting on the 10 winning publications since the award’s inception in 2011. IDA’s 2021 Larry D. Welch Award for best external publication is a book on defense management reform by IDA senior fellow Peter Levine.
