May at WorldBoston

Dear Friends,

Let's just say, never a dull moment. (Iran, North Korea, NAFTA, oh my.) 

In the world of international engagement, busy can be good: For example, this month our Citizen Diplomacy program hosts eight groups of international visitors, having hosted twelve in April, and our Global Education programs offer us all plenty (more!) to think about.

Global Education

After tonight's Chat & Chowder on the essential topic of ascendant India, featuring author Alyssa Ayres, next week Great Decisions takes on China's Grand Strategy, as Dan Blumenthal of American Enterprise Institute visits us on May 15 at the BPL. 

Save These June Dates

We wrap up the spring's Great Decisions series on June 12 with "Turkey: A Partner in Crisis", with Dr. Soner Sagaptay of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. And Chat & Chowder goes big picture on June 19 with the provocative Digital World War: Islamists, Extremists, and the Fight for Cyber Supremacy.

Update from the Office

This month we bid fond farewell to Thomas Luly, Manager of Operations and Global Education Programs, with thanks for his creative programming, advancing organizational effectiveness, and really silly jokes.  We also wish the best to Program Coordinator Cathy Tripp, multitasker extraordinaire -- and supplier of outstanding treats.  Thank you Tom and Cathy!
