Matthew Palmer, author of The American Mission is a twenty-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, currently serving as Director for Multilateral Affairs in the State Department's Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs. We are delighted and honored that Chet Crocker, Professor of strategic studies at Georgetown University and former Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs has agreed to moderate the discussion. A brief reception will follow the event.
