Join us as we travel to Page Auditorium at Duke University to hear Madeline Albright, former US Secretary of State present "The Future of Democracy at Home & Abroad.”
Albright, an author and professor of diplomacy at Georgetown University, served as the 64th U.S. secretary of state. When she became secretary in 1997, Albright was the highest-ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government.
Judith Kelley, political scientist, international relations scholar and Dean of the Sanford School of Public Policy, will interview Albright in a fireside-chat format discussing the future of democracy.
In Albright's most recent book, “Fascism: A Warning,” a #1 New York Times bestseller, she draws on her experiences as a child in war-torn Europe and her career as a diplomat to examine the response to fascism in the modern era. She documents how economic, technological, and cultural factors are weakening the political center and empowering the extremes of right and left in many countries, making fascism a more virulent threat to peace and justice now than at any time since the end of World War II.
The David M. Rubenstein Distinguished Lecture is presented by the Sanford School of Public Policy and co-sponsored by Duke’s Program in American Grand Strategy.
