US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to deliver Brzezinski Lecture at Johns Hopkins

Sep 12, 2023

For the second installment in the Brzezinski Lecture Series, the School of Advanced and International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University will welcome current United States Secretary of State Anthony J. Blinken.

Watch the lecture via livestream on Wednesday, September 13 at 10 a.m. EDT.

The lecture series seeks to “bring the world’s most preeminent thinkers to our campuses to reflect on the application of statecraft and to address the growing international challenges of our time.” The inaugural lecture, a virtual conversation with former US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on the role of the US in a post-pandemic world, took place in spring 2021.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) provides support for the Brzezinski Initiative Annual Lecture, named for diplomat and SAIS American Foreign Policy professor Zbigniew Brzezinski. Support for the series builds on past SNF grants to SAIS programs aiming to help spark productive discussion and study of international relations.
