Consider some of the speakers appearing at SAIS in October:
  • India's central bank governor
  • Turkey's deputy prime minister
  • Tunisia's finance minister
  • China's ambassador to the U.S.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S. national security adviser and SAIS senior research professor, will be joined by Madeleine Albright, Robert Gates, Stephen Hadley and Brent Scowcroft at a forum on national security set for October 22 at SAIS DC.

Here are some of the topics addressed by speakers in DC and Bologna during October:

  • the U.S. in the Persian Gulf
  • the state of journalism in the world
  • the global politics of water
  • the crisis in the euro area

When SAIS says its students have access to policymakers and experts tackling the full range of issues facing the world, it means it.
