Just G.O. for the Holidays!

The Habit brings 1920's Art Deco charm and elegance to one of the country's most-celebrated culinary destinations with a curated menu of local and regional ingredients prepared by Chef Matthew Greene. Each dish boasts inspiration from around the world to make it uniquely American with an international twist—from caviar on hashbrown bites and red curry wings, to lamb lollipops and a special selection of seasonal salads.

World Affairs Council Charleston: Speaker, Michael Miklaucic


The United States and its allies face unprecedented challenges in an increasing volatile global environment. We are presently engaged in a struggle against relentless and powerful adversaries. At the same time we must address nontraditional challenges such as climate change. What then will be the rules for international behavior in the 21st Century? We must mobilize the diverse elements of national and allied power not only to counter the threat from authoritarian states, but to meet the daunting challenges of climate change; pandemic outbreaks; and emerging, disruptive technologies.

Michael Miklaucic is a senior fellow of the Institute for National Strategic Studies at National Defense University, and the editor-in-chief of PRISM, NDU’s flagship journal of national and international security. He previously served at the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Department of State, including as USAID representative on the Civilian Response Corps Inter-Agency Task Force, as the senior program officer in the USAID Office of Democracy and Governance, and rule of law specialist in the Center for Democracy and Governance. 

As the Department of State’s deputy for War Crimes Issues in 2002-2003, Miklaucic was responsible for U.S. relations with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL), war crimes issues and negotiations in East Timor and Cambodia, and the early implementation of the Sudan Peace Act. 

Miklaucic attended the University of California, the London School of Economics, and the School for Advanced International Studies. He is a visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and sits on several academic and professional advisory boards.
