Join us on Wednesday, February 8, 2017, for a conversation on the Middle East between former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley. Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer moderates the event organized by the Pulitzer Center, Atlantic Council and Office of the Vice Chancellor for International Affairs at Washington University in St. Louis.

Albright and Hadley are co-chairs of the Atlantic Council’s Middle East Strategy Task Force (housed within the Rafik Hariri Center), a two-year initiative aimed at forging new policy solutions that harness the resources and human capital of the Middle East region itself as a solution to state failure, civil wars, and extremist violence. Albright served as secretary of state and ambassador to the United Nations under President William J. Clinton. Hadley served as national security advisor under President George W. Bush.

Some of their discussion will also revolve around the Pulitzer Center-supported project "Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Came Apart, the August 14, 2016, landmark edition of The New York Times Magazine devoted entirely to the reporting of journalist/author Scott Anderson and photographer Paolo Pellegrin, with an accompanying virtual reality segment by Ben C. Solomon.

Albright and Hadley are speaking at a diverse set of educational institutions affiliated with the Pulitzer Center around the country. While in Missouri, Albright and Hadley also will speak with high school students at Nerinx Hall in Webster Groves.
