US Foreign Policy in the Caucasus Under the Obama Administration
I’m pleased to announce that this coming Monday, April 30, Ambassador Tom Armbruster and I will be welcoming Ambassador Eric Rubin, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, to the Colin L. Powell Center for Leadership and Service at The City College of New York. Ambassador Rubin will discuss a number of critical ingredients in US foreign policy toward the Caucasus during the years of Barack Obama’s presidency, and will likely also discuss the position of Moscow with respect to the region in light of the recent protests and elections in Russia. Eric Rubin assumed his duties as Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs in July 2011. In this capacity he is responsible for issues related to Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, and the Caucasus. He most recently served as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow (2008-2011), and has graciously agreed to visit campus as the personal guest of Ambassador Armbruster, Diplomat-in-Residence at CCNY. The discussion is open to the public, but is strictly off the record. Chatham House rules apply.
