Introducing the Keynote Speaker, Dr. Peter W. Singer

The Walsh Exchange Steering Committee is pleased to introduce Peter W. Singer as the keynote speaker for our inaugural conference this April. Working in conjunction with the Georgetown University Lecture Fund, The Walsh Exchange will bring Dr. Singer to Georgetown on the evening of April 14 to speak to conference participants and interested guests alike.

Dr. Singer is the director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative and a senior fellow in Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution, and the author of the book Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century, which was recognized as the Book of the Year in 2009 by The Financial Times. He is the youngest scholar to be named a senior fellow in Brookings’ history, and is considered to be one of the preeminent scholars on 21st century warfare.

We greatly anticipate his presence at our inaugural conference this April and the chance to hear an eminent scholar of our time speak about his research in the field of international relations.
