Off the Record values your membership and participation in the dialogue that is a hallmark of the OTR tradition and remains committed to the careful study of all sides of foreign policy issues. We are hopeful that our forum will continue to challenge existing paradigms, stir intellectual debate, and enlighten us all. Here is a preview of our first three lectures:
A Patron evening with Steven A. Cook - Author and Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will offer his analysis of the future of Democracy in Turkey, its status as a NATO member, and the fight against ISIS.
OTR's Young Patron season, highlighting Film and Foreign Policy, will begin with author Kim Barker whose book, Whisky Tango Foxtrot (originally published as The Taliban Shuffle), was the basis for the Tina Fey film.
We are busy filling the 2016-2017 lecture season, which begins on September 21. We look forward to seeing you there. Members can renew their membership by logging into their account and clicking “Renew Your Membership” in the upper right hand corner of the homepage.
