Kurtzer also lauded Clinton’s visit as a promising opportunity to broaden discussions about Middle East issues.
“Senator Clinton’s visit is indicative of the terrific response from Washington policy circles and from the region to the creation of the Abraham Chair,” Kurtzer said. “After a very rewarding career in the Foreign Service, I am excited to join the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton. This is an exciting opportunity to bring together the University community with high level officials and public figures involved with the Middle East for serious discussion of contemporary issues. ”
