January 12, 2006
Washington, DC — ADC‘s Director of Legal Policy, Kareem Shora, will participate in the first “Laboratory For New Thinking on Foreign Policy” held on January 18-19 at the University of Massachusetts.
“Laboratory For New Thinking on Foreign policy” is organized by the International Institute For Social Change (IISC) and will focus on U.S. Democracy and American Foreign Policy and the challenges the U.S. now faces. The conference is being designed to regenerate thinking on the United States’ role in the world and lay the groundwork for a new consensus on foreign policy.
The conference attracts a large number of university professors, policy makers, researchers and members of grassroots organizations. Shora will be representing ADC at the two-day event. For more information about the event, please visit http://www.labfornewthinking.org
