National Security Advisor (2018-2019)
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (2005-2006)
Senior Adviser, Rhone Group
Ambassador John Bolton, National Security Advisor (2018-2019); U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (2005-2006), will speak at Duke University’s Page Auditorium on Monday, Feb. 17.
The Duke Program in American Grand Strategy’s spring 2020 Ambassador Dave and Kay Phillips Family International Lecture will focus on current threats to national security.
Parking is available in the Bryan Center Parking Deck for an hourly rate.
Bolton served as national security advisor to President Trump, having previously served in the Reagan administration and George H.W. Bush administration in several roles in the State and Justice Departments. He also served in the George W. Bush administration as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
Bolton serves as a senior adviser to the Rhône Group, advising and providing counsel to portfolio companies on a variety of matters including geopolitical and economic issues.
Peter Feaver, director of American Grand Strategy and professor of political science and public policy at Duke, will interview Bolton.
“Ambassador Bolton has been in the center of the foreign policy and national security arena during some of the most consequential periods in modern American history,” Feaver said. “His most recent service as national security advisor to President Trump positions him exceptionally well to speak to the issues of the day -- issues that will continue to shape America’s role in the world for years to come. This is an exciting opportunity to hear first-hand from a significant figure in American policymaking."
