Event with New Zealand's Ambassador - "A Life in Politics: Reflections on Globalization, Trade and the NZ-US Relationship"

The Global Scholars welcomed New Zealand's Ambassador to the United States, Mike Moore, to campus on Tuesday March 5. Ambassador Moore is a former Prime Minister of New Zealand, and also served as Director-General of the World Trade Organization.

Ambassador Moore spoke with us about the promises and pitfalls of globalization, filled us in on the latest news from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade negotiations, and reflected on New Zealand's relationship with the United States.

The Ambassador's visit was just the latest in a series of meetings that the Global Scholars have had with high profile figures from around Washington DC. Upcoming events will include visits to the State Department, the Pentagon, and the offices of the Peace Corps.
