An America and the World: Flashpoints
Free Lunch & Learn – Live and Online
Thursday, July 9, 2020 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Ambassador John Herbst shares over 30 years of experience as a foreign service officer to help us better understand the current state of our foreign policy, the good, the bad and the indifferent. What is impacting U.S. Foreign Policy and what, if anything, can we learn from former National Security Advisor, John Bolton’s, new book? Ambassador Herbst will help us to make sense of the world in which we live, how the U.S. fits in to that world, and how the world views us.
Ambassador (Ret) John Herbst has been the Director of the Eurasia Center at the Atlantic Council since May of 2014. Prior to that he worked as the Director of the Center for Complex Operations at National Defense University (September, 2010 to May, 2014).
Ambassador Herbst retired from the Foreign Service at the Department of State in 2010 following a thirty-one-year career principally devoted to work on Eurasia and the Middle East. In his last four years at State, he worked as Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization (S/CRS). He served as the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine 2003-6 and Uzbekistan 2000-03. He also served as U.S. Consul General in Jerusalem, 1997-2000, the U.S. envoy to Yasir Arafat and the Palestinian Authority. For more information on Ambassador Herbst click here.
