Director’s note: end of fall quarter 2016

December 29, 2016

Reşat Kasaba,

Our Fall Newsletter includes summaries of the main events we have hosted, stories about the publications and the accomplishments of our students and faculty, and a preview of what we are planning in the coming months.

I would like to highlight that you can watch the video versions of the lectures by clicking on the following links, listed here by event: Trump and the World; Memo to the Next President with Harvard Kennedy School Professor Nicholas Burns; and The Hot Summer: Europe, the Middle East and the U.S.

One thing that seems clear is that the world will not calm down any time soon. The Jackson School will continue to provide the best education and information to our students and our community in 2017.

Along those lines, we already have some key events lined up with recently retired U.S. Congressman Jim McDermott on January 17, the inauguration of a professorship in American foreign policy which will feature its first recipient, Daniel Bessner, on January 25, and a cybersecurity conference on February 9 at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in D.C.

For those of you who are alumni, I encourage you to check out our alumni webpage to connect with us as we’d love to hear from you. We also have alumni-specific social media groups, events and programs throughout the year.

I hope to see you at these and other events we host in the coming months.

With best wishes for a good start to the new year,

Reşat Kasaba
Director – Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies
Stanley D. Golub Chair of International Studies
