American Academy of Diplomacy’s Sisco Memorial Forum: “Why Diplomats Need to Accept More Risk,” Friday, Sept 13

 

On Friday, September 13, the American Academy of Diplomacy (AAD) and Foreign Policy for America (FPA) will convene two similar discussions with four former U.S. ambassadors on how critically important it is for diplomacy that diplomats posted overseas are empowered to take a certain amount of risk. The forum is part of AAD’s Joseph J. Sisco Memorial Forum. “Joseph J. Sisco was the Chairman of the American Academy of Diplomacy from 1999-2004. When he passed away in the fall of 2004, he requested that gifts in his honor be made to the Academy. The Academy decided that the best use of the generous donations made by his friends and family was to stimulate public discussion on the foreign policy themes to which Dr. Sisco dedicated his career.”
This two-part event is free and open to the general public. The following former diplomats will be at the Forum:
Ambassador Anne Patterson, former Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern and North African Affairs, and former Ambassador to El Salvador, Colombia, Pakistan, Egypt, and the United Nations
Ambassador Charles Ray, former Ambassador to Cambodia and Zimbabwe,
Ambassador Richard Olson, former U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, and former Ambassador to Pakistan, and United Arab Emirates
Ambassador Ronald Neumann, former Ambassador to Algeria, Bahrain and Afghanistan.
