Views from the West Wing: How Global Trends Shape U.S. Foreign Policy

Throughout history, U.S. presidential Chiefs of Staff have held a front row seat to some of the most important and influential events in our nation’s history — from tense meetings surrounding the Cuban missile crisis to the drama that unfolded in the situation room during the 2011 raid by U.S. Navy SEAL’s on Osama bin Laden’s compound.

Andrew Card and Denis McDonough, Chiefs of Staff to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, will discuss U.S. foreign policy in a keynote Notre Dame Forum event on October 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the Leighton Concert Hall of the University’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. “Views from the West Wing: How Global Trends Shape U.S. Foreign Policy” will be moderated by Maura Policelli, Executive Director of the Notre Dame Keough School of Global Affairs’ Global Policy Initiative.
