The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs
Afghanistan, Violent Islamic Extremism, and America
James B. Cunningham ’74 BA (PSc/Psych)
Former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, to Israel, and to the United Nations.
Fellow in the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center.
At a time when violent Islamic extremism distorts Islam and threatens the majority of the world, Ambassador Cunningham will discuss Afghanistan, the Middle East, and challenges posed in this region to the United States and international community. He will review mistakes made since 9/11 and argue that — particularly in today’s political atmosphere — America needs serious discussions that lead to a long-term, sustainable strategy in the region.

The 8th annual Washington, DC graduate student networking trip is fast approaching on March 13, 14, & 15 and we need your help!
Maxwell students are incredibly excited about the trip, as well as the opportunity to engage with the amazing alumni who make up the Maxwell family. As always, this trip wouldn’t be possible without support from alums like you. If you can help us by sharing your home or hosting a coffee chat please follow the instructions below to register your support.
While some students in our class have DC area connections, many students still need housing. Our students are considerate, tidy guests who will make every effort to work around your schedule. Whether you have an extra room, open couch, or floor space for a blow-up mattress, our students would greatly appreciate your assistance in keeping this trip affordable. Most students will arrive Sunday night, March 13, and depart on Wednesday, March 16 (3 nights). Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qp3cHqXtdVdGnMlZ6ktguW5pMY2rJ00PTxHFEqiWEbs/viewform
Host a Coffee Chat
Do you have time to host a small coffee chat with students on Sunday, March 13; Monday, March 14; Tuesday, March 15; or Wednesday, March 16? The chats will give you an opportunity to meet the new class and tell them about your own professional development in an informal setting. After receiving your contact information, we will share it with interested students who will get in touch with you directly to schedule a meeting. Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1TxzZzwJrxtjWH7ZDGjkjU6Ub-34cMQXNohEEtZcASoc/viewform
