Christopher Dickey is a frequent guest commentator on radio and television, including National Public Radio, NBC's Today Show, CNN's Larry King and MSNBC's Hardball. The subjects he has touched on range from the Iraq war and international terrorism to France's eccentric politics, his own tumultuous family background, the death of Princess Diana and the election of Pope Benedict XVI. (See Commentary for a few video and audio clips.)
Chris has spoken at universities and colleges across the United States and Europe. Recent appearances include Trinity College in Ireland, L'Institut d'études politiques (Sciences Po) in France, Harvard University, the University of Texas and Clemson University in the United States. He has also addressed the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, as well as the Los Angeles World Affairs Council and numerous other organizations interested in U.S. policy overseas. Because Chris works in Europe and the Middle East, he is only rarely able to arrange speaking engagements in the United States, but his next American tour is scheduled for September - October 2007, and some bookings may still be available. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
