Join the World Affairs Council for an engaging discussion March 8th, 12-1.
From addressing the COVID-19 pandemic to building climate resiliency, mayors and governors are increasingly setting their own foreign policy agendas, reaching across national borders to build relationships to help solve local problems. Subnational diplomacy — which engages state and local officials on global issues — has the potential to be a new source of innovation and creativity in foreign policy, but only if the State Department will let it.
Join the World Affairs Council for a discussion on the growing role of subnational actors like governors and mayors and how they can enhance U.S. diplomacy with Ambassador Nina Hachigian, Deputy Mayor of International Affairs for the City of Los Angeles, and Maryum Saifee, a career U.S. diplomat participating in her personal capacity.
