Crocker is the former U.S. ambassador of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Kuwait and Lebanon.

“This student-faculty dialogue comes at a time of deep concern about the Middle East and the U.S.’s evolving role,” said Chris Brown, political science senior lecturer. “The tragedy that is Syria, the current push against ISIS in Iraq and the ongoing strength of the Taliban in Afghanistan are amongst the many pressing issues incoming President Donald Trump will face from this critical complex region of the world. I can think of no better person than Ambassador Crocker to get at the heart of these issues and assess our new president’s proposed ideas.”

The discussion, hosted by the Political Science Department and the World Affairs Council of Atlanta, will be held Nov. 29 at 2:30 p.m. in the Law School Ceremonial Courtroom.
