During her long and distinguished career, Carol Lancaster, former dean at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, was a pioneer in the twin fields of diplomacy and development. Four of Carol's friends and colleagues engaged in a conversation about her academic and policy contributions and their contemporary relevance, particularly at the intersection of development, diplomacy, and gender.

Melanne Verveer, executive director of Georgetown's Institute for Women, Peace and Security, led the discussion with three other faculty members — Katherine Marshall, senior fellow at the Berkley Center; Donald McHenry, a distinguished professor in SFS; and Steven Radelet, director of the SFS Global Human Development program. Thomas Banchoff, vice president for global engagement and Berkley Center director, introduced the panel.

This is event is cosponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; Georgetown's Institute for Women, Peace and Security; and the Global Human Development program in Georgetown's School of Foreign Service. It is part of a semester-long dialogue on "The Global Future of Development," organized through Georgetown's new Global Futures Initiative.
