|Sir John Major, former prime minister of the United Kingdom
Sir John Major, former prime minister of the United Kingdom, and Ernesto Zedillo, director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization and former President of Mexico, will conduct a dialogue titled “Global Terrorism: The Enemy of Our Time,” on Wednesday, December 7 at 4 p.m. in Luce Hall, 34 Hillhouse Avenue.
The two former chiefs of state are old friends and bring the perspectives of public office at the highest level to their views on international problems. There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience following the discussion.
Sponsored by Yale’s political science department, this discussion of global terrorism is the fifth forum in a series organized by political science lecturer Stanley Flink in connection with his seminar “Ethics and the Media.”
Other panel discussions in the series have focused on media coverage of national security, military operations in Iraq, the presidential election of 2004 and, this month, the inherent conflicts arising from corporate ownership of the news media. Governor Howard Dean, Seymour Hersh, Strobe Talbott, Congressman Christopher Shays, Evan Thomas and William Donaldson were among the participants in past forums.
The event is free and open to the public.
