One of America’s most distinguished diplomats will be in Canberra for one public event. This is your opportunity to hear from – and to question – Ambassador Nicholas Burns about America’s place in the world under Donald Trump, the growing competition between the US and China, and other global issues.
Join us for a conversation with Nicholas Burns, the Lowy Institute’s 2019 Rothschild & Co Distinguished International Fellow. The discussion will be moderated by the Lowy Institute’s Sam Roggeveen, and will include audience questions.
Nicholas Burns is a Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School and served for 27 years in the US Foreign Service. Ambassador Burns was Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, US Ambassador to NATO for President George W Bush and to Greece for President Bill Clinton, and State Department spokesman for Secretaries Warren Christopher and Madeleine Albright.
The Lowy Institute acknowledges the generous support of Rothschild & Co
for the Fellowship.
All Lowy Institute public events are on the record and open for media attendance.
