Ambassador Indyk will draw upon research from his new book, Master of the Game: Henry Kissinger and the Art of Middle East Diplomacy.

The Inside Diplomacy series, hosted by President of the American Foreign Service Association Ambassador Eric Rubin, explores current national security issues as they relate to foreign policy and the Foreign Service. On the the 60th anniversary of USAID, AFSA hosts USAID Administrator Samantha Power. Previously, Power was the Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and the William D. Zabel Professor of Practice in Human Rights at Harvard Law School. From 2013 to 2017, Power served in the Obama-Biden Administration as the 28th US Permanent Representative to the UN. She will discuss the current and future role of USAID on the global stage and in America’s foreign policy and, ultimately, what that means for the U.S. Foreign Service.

Friday, November 5th
12:00 -1:00 PM ET
Under Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s economic markets have grown, a new middle class has emerged, and the country has experienced modest levels of urban development. Yet, questions remain about the country’s domestic future. To what extent have state-society relations shifted? How much domestic change has North Korea experienced, and what other developments can be expected in light of pandemic border lockdowns and economic sanctions? In his new book, State, Society and Markets in North Korea, Andrew Yeo evaluates the shifting relationship between state, society, and markets in a deeply authoritarian context. Join Brookings Institution for a discussion of Yeo's new book with Jean Lee, moderated by Nonresident Senior Fellow Sheena Greitens.
