When Pope Francis goes to Cuba in September, he will have a larger-than-usual influence over the Cuban government: he has been a champion of dialogue with the island’s regime and strong critic of the U.S. trade embargo since he authored a little-known book on Cuba in 1998.

The World Affairs Council of Atlanta recognized our Europe Day keynote speaker, Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat for his critical and sustaining contribution to European Union - United States relations for over 30 years, in the diplomatic and economic spheres, and most especially in connection with restitution for the victims of the Holocaust and other Holocaust-era issues.

We were honored to have him speak and captivated by his analysis of the current economic, security and geopolitical issues in Europe.
