Carter, Albright to discuss Middle East
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will speak on the prospects for lasting peace in the Palestinian territories at The Carter Center on Thursday, Feb. 22, from 7-8:30 p.m.
Both Carter and Albright have longstanding involvement in the region. Carter, who negotiated peace between Israel and Egypt in the Camp David Accords during his presidency, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs since leaving the White House. His recent book "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid" has stirred debate across the world.
After serving as the 64th secretary of state, Albright continued her involvement in global affairs as principal of The Albright Group LLC, a global strategy firm, and as chair of the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, as well as serving on other boards and foundations.
The Carter Center Conflict Resolution Program Director Matthew Hodes will moderate this event, which will also be webcast live on The Carter Center's Web site at www.cartercenter.org
