How Science Diplomacy helps the US and China address critical global programs, with Prof. Deborah Seligsohn

Fri. February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Prof. Deborah Seligsohn of Villanova University will speak from both her recent research on US-China health, climate and science diplomacy, and her long experience as a practitioner, both as the Science Counselor at the US Embassy in Beijing (2003-2007) and as a Senior Advisor to the World Resources Institute in Beijing (2007-2012). Her research is based on interviews, analysis of the documents and a survey she is currently conducting. She spent five months in the last two years in Beijing, enabling her to speak to the current state of the relationship and the continued need for scientific and health cooperation.


This event is free and open to the public.


The Carolina Asia Center is proud to co-sponsor this event with the Data-Driven Lab, the Department of Public Policy, and the UNC Diplomacy Initiative.
