Ashe Lecture Series with Ambassador Mark Green

The Global Security Program at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy will host Ambassador Mark Green, former Ambassador to Tanzania and current President, Director, and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue so that Congress, the administration, and the international policy community can act.

Prior to joining the Wilson Center, Green served as Executive Director of the McCain Institute, Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Prior to USAID, he served as President of the International Republican Institute, President and CEO of the Initiative for Global Development, and senior director at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition. Green served as the U.S. ambassador to Tanzania from mid-2007 to early 2009. Before that, he served four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Wisconsin’s 8th District.

Ashe Lectures are sponsored by former Knoxville mayor and US Ambassador to Poland, Victor Ashe through the East Tennessee Foundation. For the series, ambassadors and mayors are invited to speak on a variety of public matters, including foreign relations, diplomacy, world affairs, and local government.
