The Walter Roberts Endowment will hold its 2020 Annual Lecture on Thursday, January 30, 2020, at the Elliott School of International Affairs, Washington, D.C. The speaker will be renowed political scientist Joseph S. Nye, Jr. who will be speaking on "Do Morals Matter? Presidents and Foreign Policy”. Nye is one of the world's leading scholars on international relations and the person responsible for introducing the term "soft power" to describe the persuasive approach in foreign policy.
Nye's latest book takes a look at past U.S. presidents to the current, and evaluates their leadership in U.S. foreign policy based on ethical dimensions. The 2020 Walter Roberts Annual Lecture will also celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Soft Power".
