Our next dinner meeting will be on Thursday, Nov. 19 with Irina Chindea of Harvard’s Belfer Center and of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts.

Reminder that we are rescheduling the visit of Unicef official Rima Salah. See below.

Ms. Chindea will be speaking on the dynamics of international criminal organizations, with a focus on Latin America. (Her piece in the National Interest headlined “El Chapo’s {drug kingpin} Escape From Prison: Good for Mexico?’’ got my attention! She has done very extensive (and brave) field work in various nations on this rather scary subject.
