General Jones, now chairman of the Council's Brent Socwcroft Center on International Security, focused on Europe’s energy policies, specifically regarding shale gas, and what recent developments could mean for Europe as a whole. During the Q&A, Jones commented that the Obama Administration regrets usage of the term "pivot towards Asia" and how it relates to the transatlantic alliance (clip below).
Launched in 2009 in partnership with the government of Poland, this lecture series pays tribute to one of the great figures of the Solidarity movement in Poland, a courageous leader who was among the most crucial advisers to Lech Walesa during the Gdansk shipyard strikes and beyond. He did much through his intellect, wisdom, and engagement to end the Cold War’s division of Europe and served a democratic Poland as foreign minister, among other key positions.
