February 12, 2009 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Ambassador Chris Hill, the Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and Pacific Affairs, will be here this Thursday, February 12, to give a talk open to the Law School community. The talk, which is part of the International Conflict Resolution Colloquium, begins at 4:30 pm in Room 290.
Ambassador Hill is one of the most distinguished career officials today serving in the State Department. In recent years, he has been at the center of some of the country's most challenging diplomatic crises, including the effort to end the war in the former Yugoslavia. For the last four years, Ambassador Hill has led the U.S. delegation in multilateral and bilateral negotiations aimed at ending the North Korean nuclear crisis. His talk will address his efforts to achieve the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
