The Institute of World Politics will host the third Brian Kelley Memorial Lecture on the topic of Energy Security in the 21st Century with Amb. R. James Woolsey, Former Director of Central Intelligence and IWP Chancellor.
This event is co-sponsored by the IWP Alumni Association.
Ambassador R. James Woolsey has served as the Director of Central Intelligence, as chief negotiator to the CFE (Conventional Armed Forces in Europe) talks with the rank of ambassador, and as General Counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. Jim has been one of the most prominent analysts of national security issues, as well as energy policy. He has been a proponent of US energy independence and the protection of major infrastructure vulnerabilities, such as our electric grid upon which everything in our civilization depends.
In addition to his five presidential appointments in two Republican and two Democratic administrations, Amb. Woolsey has also served as a board member on a number of publicly and privately held companies, generally in fields related to technology and security. In 2009, he was the Annenberg Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and in 2010-11, he was a Senior Fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs.
