NPR & Wilson Center Partner Up

  • SHARES

By Betsy Rothstein

Executives at NPR and The Wilson Center think the country deserves civil discourse. In that vein, they’ve created a year-long public event series called “The National Conversation.” They will co-produce the series. Each event will feature leaders, experts and government officials. A NPR journo will moderate as the Wilson Center plays host.

The first event is June 20. It’s called: “Should the U.S. Change, Contain, or Engage Nuclear ‘Outliers’ — Iran and North Korea?”

A panel will feature the Wilson Center’s International Security Studies Director Robert Litwak and NYT Columnist Thomas Friedman. Steve Inskeep, host of NPR’s Morning Edition, will moderate. In September, The National Conversation examines security issues in a post 9/11 world.

More dates and series topics will be announced as they are confirmed.
