SAIS to hold forum on ‘The World 10 Years After 9/11’

How have the 9/11 attacks and the turbulent years that followed changed the way we view the world today, and what are the implications for foreign policy, intelligence and defense?

A panel of SAIS faculty and scholars—all of them engaged as senior government officials during this period—will reflect on the recent past and offer recommendations for the future at a SAIS forum titled “The World 10 Years After 9/11.” The event will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, in the Nitze Building’s Kenney Auditorium.

Panelists are Jose Maria Aznar, distinguished fellow at the SAIS Center for Transatlantic Relations, or CTR, and former president of the government of Spain; John McLaughlin, distinguished practitioner in residence at the SAIS Philip Merrill Center for Strategic Studies and former acting director of the CIA; Eliot Cohen, director of the SAIS Strategic Studies Program and former counselor of the U.S. Department of State; Eric Edelman, distinguished practitioner in residence at the Merrill Center and former undersecretary of defense for policy and former U.S. ambassador to Turkey and Finland; and Daniel Hamilton (moderator), CTR executive director.

Non-SAIS affiliates who would like to at-tend should RSVP to CTR at www.eventbrite
