Jake Sullivan: Revitalizing Democracy at Home and Abroad

Along with The World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, NH Civics, the NH Chapter of the Fulbright Association, the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership, and Public Service, and NH Humanities, the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding is honored to host Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Jake Sullivan, for a moderated conversation on revitalizing democracy at home and abroad.

As the lines between global and domestic affairs continue to blur, an informed and engaged public is vital to a strong and vibrant democracy. With the United States facing many of the same headwinds as other countries around the world, it is important for a focused and informed approach to tackling these issues, both foreign and domestic.

Through a moderated conversation, led by Dr. Melinda Negron-Gonzales, Chair of Security Studies at UNH Manchester, Mr. Sullivan will outline the challenges that democracy faces and present solutions, which everyone can take part in. For the United States to be the "Shining City on the Hill", it must reflect democratic values at both home and abroad.

Currently serving as Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Jake Sullivan was a Montgomery Fellow and Magro Family Distinguished Visitor in International Affairs with the Dickey Center in 2019-2020.
