On Thursday, 24 April 2014 at 13:00 - 14:00 an author and expert on diplomacy Nicholas Kralev will deliver a public lecture "The Impact of American Diplomacy in the 21st Century" at Riga Graduate School of Law (room W20). Lecture is open for students and Alumni of RGSl, as well as for all other interested parties.
During the lecture Nicholas Kralev will discuss how the work of American diplomats affects the daily lives of millions of people around the world, and how U.S. diplomacy has changed since 9/11. Kralev has been given unprecedented access to the inner sanctum of American diplomacy in Washington and around the world over several years. He will talk about his recent book, America's Other Army, which is based on his visits to more than 50 embassies and interviews with 600 career diplomats, as well as Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright. For a decade, Kralev traveled with these U.S. secretaries of state to over 80 countries as a newspaper correspondent.
