Former National Security Advisor Scowcroft to Speak on Current Administration

Author: Arts and Letters

Lt. General Brent Scowcroft, former U.S. national security advisor to Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush, will present “The Foreign Policy Challenges Facing the Obama Administration” at 4p.m. April 27 (Monday) in the auditorium of the Hesburgh Center at the University of Notre Dame. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Prior to the presentation, Gen. Scowcroft will sign copies of his latest book, America and the World: Conversations on the Future of American Foreign Policy, which he co-authored with Zbigniew Brzezinski, former national security advisor to President Jimmy Carter.

Scowcroft’s presentation is part of Notre Dame’s International Security Program seminar series, which was established last year to provide a forum where leading scholars in national security studies from Notre Dame and elsewhere could come together to explore some of the most pressing issues in national security policy. The program is co-directed by Notre Dame political science faculty members Michael Desch, Kier Lieber, Daniel Lindley and Sebastian Rosato.
