Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering

The Second Distinguished Fulbright Lecture on International Relations, 'The Decade Ahead: The US Role in the World', was given by Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering on 18 May at the University of Oxford.

This lecture was the third in a series of Fulbright Lectures on International Relations given in May 2012 by Ambassador Pickering; the preceeding two were at King’s College London (10 May) and at the University of Edinburgh (14 May). For more information on these events, please click here.

The annual lectures commemorate Senator J. William Fulbright, one of Oxford’s most distinguished alumni, and form part of a proposal to create a University Fulbright post, as well as Fulbright rooms at Pembroke College. The proposal is a joint initiative involving the US-UK Fulbright Commission, the University Department of Politics and International Relations, the Cultural Affairs Office of the US Embassy and Pembroke College. For full information please download the Fulbright Prospectus. The Oxford lecture was made possible by the generous support of Oxford and Pembroke alumnus, Brian Wilson.

Politics in Spires has published a blog about the lecture: comments on the post are most welcome.
