Why Diplomacy Matters”

Date: Friday, September 21,  @ 5:30pm
Location: Room 102 Wishcamper Hall, USM Portland

We are excited to announce a talk by the Honorable David Pearce, former U.S Ambassador to Greece (and Algeria). He will discuss why U.S. engagement abroad matters, drawing on over four decades of experience of living and working overseas, as a journalist and diplomat. He will also provide practical examples of diplomacy at work, from his time as Ambassador to Greece from 2013-2016, and his  many years of work in the Middle East.
Ambassador Pearce has held senior-level positions at the State Department in Washington, with responsibility for Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
After three years of service as Ambassador in Athens, he retired in November 2016 from the U.S. Department of State as a Career Minister, the second-highest rank attainable in the Foreign Service.
