U.S. Peace-building Initiatives around the World
– An Interview with Ambassador Rick Barton
Moderated by Dr. Matthew Shank
“I like how the Richmond World Affairs Council gives us the chance to learn about international affairs in a way that isn’t too US-centric… It’s important to me and it’s important when studying the world.”
“I really enjoy [WAC Programs] and recommend them to friends!”
“To see all these people that are interested in [world affairs], to the point that they come sit and listen, is actually really cool.”
“The event was great and very educational! I liked the way the Q&A was set up where you have the speaker’s view but then you also have the audience give their thoughts and ask questions and leading the conversation, and that can move in so many different directions…”
“We highly value presentations of the WAC.”
“We always enjoy and learn something from the lectures.”
