Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley presented their plea for a bipartisan approach to foreign policy at Washington University in St. Louis-the first in series of lectures Albright, Hadley and Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer will have across the country. The series brings a diverse set of Pulitzer Center partner schools into conversation about evolving issues in the Middle East.
St. Louis Jewish Light Editor-in-Chief Emeritus Robert Cohn noted several themes that the panelists highlighted, including the goal of "encouraging governments in the Middle East to unlock their most valuable resource: people, especially young people and women." Read the full article on the Jewish Light site. Cohn covered Albright and Hadley's remarks regarding stopping violence in the region, and praising the progress toward more open societies, empowering more people in the Middle East and helping to create a framework to bolster support of their own citizens.
