Rokke, will lead a discussion on “Managing U.S. Foreign Policy,” at a Georgetown University Leadership Seminar on Monday, March 24, in Washington D.C. Rokke will chair a session that will feature a lecture on homeland security and the war on terrorism by Ivo Daalder, senior fellow, Brookings Institute, and former director of European affairs, National Security Council. In addition, J. Bryan Hehir, president and CEO of Catholic Charities USA and former dean of the Harvard Divinity School, will offer a presentation on politics, ethics, and the use of force. Representatives of 35 countries and a variety of academic disciplines will attend the seminar.

The goal of the seminar program is to promote a dialogue among emerging world leaders leading to greater cooperation in international affairs, and to expose international participants to the foreign policy-making process in the United States through direct contact with top level American policy makers. The seminar also seeks to establish an ongoing network to bolster international cooperation and areas of agreement among leaders in the global community.

He graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1962 and holds master's and doctorate degrees from Harvard University. Dr. Rokke's 35-year military career was distinguished by operational, diplomatic, and academic leadership positions. He serves on the Council of Foreign Relations.
