Event Description

Please join the Foreign Policy Association for the launch of the fall 2017 FPA Centennial Lecture Series.  This year’s lecture will be delivered by Michael W. Doyle, Director of Columbia University’s Global Policy Initiative and Professor at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.  Professor Doyle will speak on “The Model International Mobility Convention,” a proposed framework for the creation of internationally recognized minimum rights for individuals moving across borders for any length of time as visitors, students, tourists, labor migrants, entrepreneurs, long-term residents, asylum seekers, or refugees.    

The Foreign Policy Association’s year-long Centennial Lecture Series, commencing in spring 2017, will celebrate 100 years of commitment to fostering an educated public discourse on the most influential topics in U.S. foreign policy. The Foreign Policy Association’s Centennial Lecture Series will feature extraordinary speakers, who will take the long view and imagine the future in their respective disciplines. The importance of providing citizens with accessible, in-depth, non-partisan material is vital to future world peace and prosperity. In one of his final public addresses, President Franklin D. Roosevelt told the Foreign Policy Association that “In a democracy the Government functions with the consent of the whole people. The latter must be guided by the facts.” Now more than ever, this message continues to have resonance, and will remain the guiding principle and goal of the Foreign Policy Association.

The will be held at the SUNY Global Center (116 E 55Th Street, New York, NY), on October 12th.
