American Diplomacy in a Post-9/11 Era

  • October 7, 2019
  • 7 to 8:30 P.M.
  • Auditorium

Diplomacy has long been an essential tool in the American national security playbook, and this proved to be especially true in the aftermath of 9/11. Today, a new era of diplomacy poses fresh challenges for American diplomats. Ronald E. Neumann of the American Academy of Diplomacy, Gérard Araud, former Ambassador of France to the U.S. (2014-2019), and Peter Ammon, former Ambassador of Germany to the U.S. (2011-2014), discuss the future of American diplomacy. 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ambassador Ronald E. Neumann was no longer able to participate in this program.
