During the first three months of 2004, Larry Diamond served as a senior adviser on governance to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq. He is now lecturing and writing about the challenges of post-conflict state-building in Iraq.
Rajiv Chandrasekran has been one of the Post's main correspondents in Iraq over the last two years. He is currently on leave from the Post and is a Visiting Scholar at the SAIS, Johns Hopkins University.
Diamond and Chandrasekran will speak panel-style and provide their perspectives on the recent elections in Iraq and Iraq's political future. A light lunch will be served on a first come, first serve basis.
