Energy: A Burning Issue for Foreign Policy
His Excellency Sir David Manning, British Ambassador to the United States, will deliver the 2006 Frank E. and Arthur W. Payne Distinguished Lecture.
The Payne Professorship is named for Frank E. Payne and Arthur W. Payne, brothers who gained an appreciation for global problems through their international business operations. Their descendants endowed the annual lecture series at FSI in order to raise public understanding of the complex policy issues facing the global community today and to increase support for informed international cooperation.
The Payne Distinguished Professor is chosen for his or her international reputation as a leader, with an emphasis on visionary thinking; a broad, practical grasp of a given field; and the capacity to clearly articulate an important perspective on the global community and its challenges.
