Evans Revere '76 Talk

(Tuesday, Oct. 24, 7:30 p.m., location: Friend Center, Convocation Room)

 

In 2012, Evans led PA3 members in a fascinating precept-like session discussing the complex diplomacy between the DPRK, the USA and China.  Clearly, this issue has moved to the forefront of foreign policy concerns, and Evans remains deeply involved. We're most fortunate that he has agreed to revisit this topic with PA3. Space is limited, so please RSVP to Tom Swift at tswift@alumni.princeton.edu.

More about Evans: Evans Revere '76 graduated with a degree in East Asian studies. He retired from the foreign service in 2007, having served in numerous capacities including  Acting Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, managing U.S. relations with the Asia-Pacific region and leading an organization of 950 American diplomats and 2,500 Foreign Service National employees. He has been a visiting lecturer at the Woodrow Wilson School and CEO of the Korea Society. He is currently a Senior Advisor to the Albright Stonebridge Group, a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has traveled to Pyongyang many times. He posts frequently on Brookings "Order from Chaos" blog, such as this September post.
