U.S. Leadership in a Changing World

A Conversation with Avril Haines

Former Deputy National Security Advisor to President Obama, Deputy Director of the CIA and Legal Advisor to the NSC

Thanks to Avril Haines for visiting Duke and sharing an evening with AGS. As former deputy national security adviser to President Obama, Haines shared candidly about the challenges she faced in that role, while pulling the curtain back to give practical insight on NSC dynamics. She went on to answer questions and give perspective on everything from relations with North Korea to America’s weaknesses in cyber-security. Ultimately, she expressed that our values — what we stand for as a nation — must continue to be a driving force behind the decisions our country makes as a global leader.
