Former ambassador and author Stuart Eizenstat will present his provocative analysis on how major geopolitical, economic, and security challenges are reshaping the Jewish world and its relationship with the United States. The event will be at the Bob Graham Center on Monday, Sept. 30 at 6 p.m. in Pugh Hall, followed by a book signing. The event and parking are free and open to the public.

During a decade and a half of public service in three US administrations, Ambassador Eizenstat held a number of key senior positions, including chief White House domestic policy adviser to President Jimmy Carter (1977-1981); U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, Under Secretary of State for Economic, Business and Agricultural Affairs, and Deputy Secretary of the Treasury in the Clinton Administration (1993-2001).

Eizenstat’s latest book, The Future of the Jews, traces how shifting global power away from the United States and Europe to the emerging powers in Asia and Latin America poses particular challenges for the Jewish community, and raises particular issues for the relationship between Israel and the U.S.

The event is sponsored by the Bob Graham Center, the Department of Political Science, and the Center for Jewish Studies.
