Strobe Talbott , President, The Brookings Institution

Thursday, March 12, 2009

6th Floor Flom Auditorium
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

Webcast live at

Foreign policy expert Strobe Talbott guides the audience through human
history - from the Garden of Eden and the Greeks to the post-Cold War
era - to explore the breakthroughs and breakdowns in one of the greatest
quests of all time: forging a peaceful community of nations. Today, the
world is facing two overwhelming threats-nuclear proliferation and
climate change. It will take the cooperation of the entire international
community, along with a proactive global governance structure, to avert
the disasters these threats pose to humanity. Talbott's presentation is
based on his recent book of the same name.

Strobe Talbott is president of The Brookings Institution. Talbott,
whose career spans journalism, government service, and academe, is an
expert on U.S. foreign policy, with specialties on Europe, Russia, South
Asia, and nuclear arms control. As deputy secretary of state in the
Clinton administration, Talbott was deeply involved in both the conduct
of U.S. policy abroad and the management of executive branch relations
with Congress.
