On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, the Walsh School of Foreign Service, in partnership with the Institute of Politics and Public Service at the McCourt School of Public Policy, hosted a half-day symposium on “The Future of Diplomacy.” The day began with two panels, on “The Essential Diplomat” and “Values in U.S. Foreign Policy,” and ended with a keynote conversation with former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The symposium was part of the Lloyd George Centennial Lectures on the Future of the Global Order, a series of events in honor of the SFS’s 100th year. The Lloyd George Centennial Lectures are aimed at addressing challenges of international affairs with a recognition that the global order is on the precipice of enormous change, as it was 100 years ago, when UK Prime Minister David Lloyd George attended the Paris Peace Conference. Previous speakers include Margaret MacMillan, G. John Ikenberry, Erez Manela, and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono (SFS’86). The lecture series is supported by the Lloyd George family.
