Some upcoming book events


I’ll be spending this month and the fall presenting Why We Fight to security, development, humanitarian, and government agencies. If you’re a member of any of the following agencies, here are some upcoming internal events to look out for:

  • Thursday June 23rd, 9am Washington DC (hybrid): USAID, Agency-wide event organized by the Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization (CPS)
  • Wednesday June 29, 9am New York (hybrid): International Rescue Committee, and agency talk and Q&A
  • Thursday June 30, 9am Washington DC (virtual only): The World Bank, sponsored by the Fragility, Conflict & Violence group
