Virtual Newport Lecture Series with Dr. Mary Thompson-Jones

New U.S. Initiatives in the Arctic: Dealing with Changing Realities

Mary Thompson-Jones, Ed.D, is a career diplomat, professor, and published author on U.S. foreign policy and the practice of diplomacy. She is currently a professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College (USNWC). Her book, “To the Secretary: Leaked Embassy Cables and America’s Foreign Policy Disconnect” (Norton 2016), was praised by Joseph Nye as “a fascinating account of how diplomacy really works from the bottom up.” Her diplomatic experience spans a 23-year career as a foreign service officer in leadership roles in the Czech Republic, Canada, Guatemala, Spain, and Washington, D.C. She retired with the rank of Minister-Counselor and is the recipient of several Superior and Meritorious Honor awards. Before coming to the USNWC, she directed a master’s program at Northeastern University.

Dr. Thompson-Jones will speak for about 45 minutes, followed by a Q & A with questions submitted by attendees.

The 2022-2023 Newport Lecture Series is generously underwritten by the Estate of Trustee Emerita Barbara and Mr. Herbert Epstein.
