Posted: 09 Aug 2011
Inaugural Fulbright lecture in International Relations, given at St Antony's College to commemorate Senator J. William Fulbright, one of Oxford's most distinguished alumni and founder of the Fulbright Programme of Academic Exchanges Professor Slaughter discussed how the nature of US foreign policy during the Obama administration has shifted from purely government - government diplomacy to place far greater emphasis on government - society relations and on society - society relations. As part of this shift development has come to assume a much higher priority in US foreign policy, alongside defence and traditional diplomacy. Introduced by Professor Sir Adam Roberts and Professor Andrew Hurrell and hosted by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, in association with the US-UK Fulbright Commission, the United States Embassy, Pembroke College and the Roth Endowment.
