On Tuesday, December 4, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Mme. Christine Lagarde will deliver the eighth Henry Alfred Kissinger Lecture on Foreign Policy and International Relations in the Great Hall of the Library of Congress.
Madame Lagarde will speak about the changing landscape of the international system and the need for continued creativity in US leadership in order to tackle the world’s shared economic challenges.
After the lecture, Mme. Lagarde will participate in a conversation with Margaret Brennan, moderator of “Face the Nation” and CBS News’ Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent.
The Kissinger Lecture is delivered by an individual who has achieved distinction in the field of foreign affairs, chosen by the Librarian of Congress.
