Martin Walker, Author, Historian and International Policy Director
Brexit leaves Europe unbalanced, with Germany as the biggest and richest nation and France a poor second. The Germans have learned, painfully and profoundly, to duck responsibility, but it is being thrust upon them. In his talk, Martin Walker will explore how Europe will cope without widening its north-south divide. Martin Walker has a vast knowledge of global events and relationships. He is a senior fellow of the Global Business Policy Council, a private think tank for CEOs of major corporations, and a senior scholar of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. Since graduating Balliol College in Oxford, England, he has taken on a variety of impressive positions, including Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of United Press International (UPI), and, in a 25-year career with the Manchester Guardian newspaper, serving as bureau-in-chief in Moscow and the U.S., as well as European editor and assistant editor.
