4/18: Renowned Political Scientist Francis Fukuyama to Give Public Lecture at MIIS
April 17, 2014
On Friday, April 18 the internationally renowned political scientist and economist Francis Fukuyama will give a public lecture in the Monterey Institute’s Irvine Auditorium. Dr. Fukuyama is the latest in an exceptional line of highly respected and influential speakers to address some of the world’s most pressing and challenging issues as part of this semester’s Spring Colloquium dedicated to economic diplomacy and statecraft.
Francis Fukuyama is the Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at Stanford’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI). He has written widely on issues in development and international politics but is perhaps best known for his influential 1992 book The End of History and the Last Man declaring the triumph of liberal democracy and arrival of a post-ideological world. His most recent book, The Origins of Political Order was published in 2011 and the companion volume Political Order and Political Decay will be published later this year.
Dr. Fukuyama’s lecture at MIIS will be titled “Economic Diplomacy and Global Governance in a Multi-polar World,” and it will be followed with a session for questions and answers. The lecture begins at 6 p.m. in the Irvine Auditorium at 499 Pierce Street in Monterey, and is free and open to the public.
