In Memoriam

WASHINGTON, February 8, 2021: CSIS president and CEO John J. Hamre today released the following statement on the passing of former secretary of state George Shultz:
 
“CSIS joins all Americans in mourning the death of George Shultz. Secretary Shultz was a frequent participant in CSIS activities and a consistently constructive leader in every engagement. Few people have contributed so much to America's security and prosperity. Secretary Shultz understood the crucial role America must play in building a better world, always directed toward advancing democratic values. His last message to America was a ringing call for restoring trust in American politics. This is how we should celebrate the life of this great man.”
