2013 is a birthday year for Fletcher — 80 years since the school’s founding in 1933. To mark the occasion, students, staff, faculty, and many alumni will be attending a gala on Saturday evening. And timed to coincide with the gala, The Fletcher Forum sent this announcement yesterday:
The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs is pleased to announce the online launch of our brand new issue, Vol. 37:3, “Fletcher at 80.” The Special Issue celebrates Fletcher’s 80th year with articles written by Fletcher alumni, faculty, and students.
The Special Edition of The Fletcher Forum features articles by Stephen W. Bosworth, Dean Emeritus of The Fletcher School, who shares his reflections on his tenure as Dean. It also includes a message from current Dean James Stavridis, who suggests key areas of focus for the school in the years ahead, while also reflecting on its cherished history. Prominent alumni and faculty lend their insights, and we read thoughts from Ambassador William A. Rugh, Richard H. Shultz, Jr., Ambassador Derek J. Mitchell, Hans Binnendijk, Michael Parmly, and many more. The edition also includes a conversation with Mimi Alemayehou, Executive Vice President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). Topics covered range from U.S.-Burma relations, to gender analyses in international development, to the challenges facing NATO, to a change in the status quo at Guantánamo Bay. To view the complete list of articles and abstracts, along with PDF versions of the articles, please visit our website. Individual PDFs of the articles are also available.
The Forum is run by a staff of forty graduate students here at The Fletcher School, and your support helps us to put out the best product possible each semester.
