An FPRI Event: President Carter: The White House Years

May 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is part of the FPRI* ongoing series Geopolitics with Granieri

Geopolitics with Granieri features a conversation – some might say an interrogation – with guest scholars on subjects in the news. Moderated by FPRI’s RON GRANIERI each session draws upon FPRI’s vast network of scholars and outside experts to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of current events. This uniquely interactive program, produced in front of a live audience, offers real substance and emphasizes active audience participation from both the studio and the live YouTube audience.
*Foreign Policy Research Institute

In this session, our guest is Stuart Eizenstat, Senior Counsel at Covington & Burling LLP. During a decade and a half of public service in three US administrations, Ambassador Eizenstat has 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).

In what is heralded as the definitive history of Jimmy Carter’s presidency by a key policy advisor, Eizenstat’s book, President Carter: The White House Years, provides an insider perspective on the successes and failures of the Carter Administration. In this conversation, we will explore Carter’s role in the negotiations between Israel and Egypt, the Iranian hostage crisis, the turning over of the Panama Canal, the role of human rights in US foreign policy, and a range of other issues. Stuart Eizenstat has served as US Ambassador to the EU and Deputy Secretary at the Treasury and the State departments.

Registration begins at 6:15 pm, with the program to follow from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
