U.S.-European relations in the spotlight tonight

Jean-David Levitte, France’s ambassador to the United States
2:53 p.m., March 9, 2004--“Old Europe: Trusted Allies or Unfaithful Friends?” a lecture on the shifting dynamics of America’s alliance with Europe, is the topic of UD's Global Agenda series speaker this week, as Jean-David Levitte, France’s ambassador to the United States, takes the stage at 7:30 p.m, Wednesday, March 10, in Clayton Hall.

Levitte served as senior adviser to French President Jacques Chirac from 1995-2000, when he was appointed to represent France at the United Nations. He was France's U.N. representative during the runup to the Iraq War, when the United States and France suffered their political falling out over international support for the war. Since December 2002, Levitte has been France’s ambassador to the United States. For more information about Levitte, visit [www.udel.edu/global/agenda/2004/speakers/speaker3.html].

The “Enemies List” series of Global Agenda lectures, highlighting topics ranging from terrorism to nuclear disarmament, continues at 7:30 p.m., Wednesdays, through May 12, in Mitchell Hall. The series is free and open to the public.

The next lecture in the series will be “Snakes in the Sand: The Arab and Muslim Worlds,” on March 31. United Nations officer Zahir Jamal and U.S. Ambassador Kenton Keith will examine Arabian and Muslim culture. Jamal is chief of Arab regional programs for U.N. Development Program and principal editor of the annual U.N. report, which first critiqued the Arab world in 2002. Keith recently served as U.S. spokesperson in Islamabad, Pakistan, during the 2002 war in Afghanistan. He previously spent his diplomatic career representing the United States in the Arab world.

Organized by Ralph Begleiter, UD’s Rosenberg Professor of Communication and distinguished journalist in residence, the series is designed to survey potential threats to the United States and explore the complex framework of global relations. The series is cosponsored by the University of Delaware and the World Affairs Council of Wilmington.

For more information on the speakers and their subjects, visit [www.udel.edu/global/agenda/2004/]. For general information on the series, call the Department of Communication at 831-8041.
