About the Event
NED is delighted to welcome Zalmay Khalilzad, former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the United Nations and a member of the NED Board, to discuss his new book, The Envoy: From Kabul to the White House, My Journey Through a Turbulent World. The memoir, which spans Khalilzad’s early life in Afghanistan through his service as a policymaker in three U.S. administrations, offers rare insights and a unique perspective on the challenging years since 2001. Khalilzad also provides a valuable lens for gauging the best path forward for the U.S., especially in the troubled countries of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Joining Ambassador Khalilzad to discuss the memoir and its historical and contemporary relevance will be NED Senior Director for the Middle East and North Africa Laith Kubba and Ambassador James Dobbins, a senior fellow and Distinguished Chair in Diplomacy and Security at the RAND Corporation. NED President Carl Gershman will moderate.
A light reception will follow the discussion. Books will be available for sale and signing.
