Carnegie hosted its inaugural open house for faculty and students interested in international affairs. Participants had the opportunity to learn about Carnegie’s role in public policy and international relations, working in a think tank, and our Junior Fellows Program.

Carnegie President Jessica T. Mathews introduced the evening in conversation with Tom Carver, vice president for communications and strategy. Scholars Karim Sadjadpour and George Perkovich spoke about their respective careers, offered insights into the nature of their daily work, and fielded questions. A reception followed with an opportunity to meet and network with our scholars and staff working on Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Nuclear Policy, and Energy and Climate issues.

This event was intended for current students, recent graduates, faculty, and staff.
