Emboldened adversaries and skeptical allies confront the new administration’s foreign policy team as it attempts to rebuild American diplomatic leadership in the world. From Russia trying to remain relevant to China trying to assert dominance, it is a fraught world out there.

One of the Vail Symposium’s favorite speakers, Ambassador Christopher Hill provides a career diplomat’s view on the state of U.S. foreign policy. Ambassador Hill is a former career diplomat, a four-time ambassador, nominated by three presidents, whose last post was as Ambassador to Iraq, April 2009 until August 2010. He will be joined in conversation by Ambassador Gary Grappo, also a career member of the Senior Foreign Service of the U.S. Department of State, a former U.S. ambassador and currently a Distinguished Fellow at the Center for Middle East Studies at the Korbel School for International Studies, University of Denver.
