The Council will feature Washington Post foreign correspondent Pamela Constable. Ms. Constable will discuss “Friend or foe: US - Pakistan Relations.” She will also include photos from her years in Pakistan, giving participants an intimate look at life in a country unknown to most of us.

Winner of the Maria Moors Cabot Prize for journalism from Columbia University, Constable is also the author of Fragments of Grace: My Search for Meaning in the Strife of South Asia, Playing with Fire: Pakistan at War with Itself, and co-author of A Nation of Enemies: Chile Under Pinochet.
