Dr. Ronald Hatchett

Schreiner professor invited to speak on world affairs

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs has invited Dr. Ronald Hatchett, director of the Center for Global Studies at Schreiner University, to speak at a public forum in Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 15 and 16, 2008. Dr. Hatchett will lead a panel discussion on “Selling Them the Rope: How U.S. Policy Blunders Promote Militant Islam.” He also will address a CCWA dinner meeting the night before the panel.

CCWA is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization founded on the principle that an informed citizenry is the basis of democracy. In 1947, it cosponsored with Time magazine an Institute on World Affairs that provided the basis for the Marshall Plan. It was the primary plan of the United States for rebuilding and creating a stronger foundation for the allied countries of Europe, and repelling communism after World War II.

Dr. Hatchett is a 20-year veteran of U.S. Air Force Intelligence, and was a senior civilian in the Department of Defense under President Ronald Reagan.
