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.
