Welcome Mr. Secretary

Fall/Winter 2015-16

The Belfer Center hosted Secretary of State John Kerry in October for a discussion of diplomacy and challenges in critical hotspots around the globe.

Center Director Graham Allison asked Secretary Kerry about his concerns and plans related to Iran, Syria, Russia, and the Islamic State. The overflow event included questions from the more than 500 Harvard students and faculty in attendance.

In his concluding comments to students, Kerry said, "When you look at health advances...technology advances...what we're building in capacity in various countries...the movement of goods, the creation of middle classes in country after country, we're on a march to transformation, folks, and you all are going to be part of it."
