Former U.S. Ambassador James F. Moriarty will focus on the balance of power in East Asia and the Obama Administration during the first Martin Forum of the academic year on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2015.
Moriarty, a former ambassador to Nepal and Bangladesh, will present the talk “Asia’s Nation States and Other Actors: Opportunities and Challenges for the U.S.,” which looks at U.S. policy in the region, starting at 7 p.m. in the University of Idaho Administration Building Auditorium, 851 Campus Drive in Moscow.
Moriarty is the first Martin Institute Visiting Distinguished Practitioner of International Affairs (VDPIA) for 2014.
“The students, staff and faculty of the Martin Institute are thrilled to welcome such a distinguished public servant as Ambassador Moriarty,” said Bill L. Smith, director of the Martin Institute and the Program for International Studies. “Ambassador Moriarty’s extensive service in East Asia through several presidential administrations and in the midst of significant diplomatic challenges makes him an ideal speaker.”
