On Friday, Feb. 23, The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs will host a conversation on counterterrorism between two of its Senior Fellows: Secretary John Kerry and General (ret.) Stanley McChrystal.
The conversation—which will be live-streamed beginning at 11:30am—will address Afghanistan and the problematic strategic partnerships in counterterrorism.
The talk is part of an all-day conference on the future of U.S. counterterrorism. Attendance is by invitation only, but a live-stream video will be available to the general public.
On February 1, 2013, Kerry was sworn in as the 68th secretary of state of the United States. He became the first sitting U.S. secretary of state to meet with Iran’s foreign minister since the Iranian revolution. This meeting was the highest-level U.S. diplomatic contact with Iran in more than six years. Kerry was also a key architect of the Paris Climate Accord, signing the historic agreement to reduce carbon emissions in 2016.
