Former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright and former National Security Advisor, Stephen Hadley Speak at Penn

On Wednesday March 1 the Middle East Center in partnership with the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, Perry World House and the South Asia Center organized a panel discussion entitled “A New Approach to the Middle East” with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley, as participants. The panel discussion took place at 5: 00 pm in Perry World House.  John Sawyer, the Executive Director of the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, moderated the discussion. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former National Security Advisor, Stephen Hadley were co-chairs of the Atlantic Council's Middle East Strategy Task Force: a two-year initiative (housed within the Rafik Hairi Center) aimed at forging new policy solutions that harness the resources and human capital of the Middle East itself as a solution to state failure, civil wars, and extremist violence. Approximately 400 people attended the lecture.
