About The Event
Former U.S. Ambassador ALFRED H. MOSES launches his illuminating memoire, covering a crucial period in Romania’s recent history, Bucharest Diary: An American Ambassador’s Journey (Brookings Institution Press, 2018), at the Romanian Cultural Institute, in a dialogue with MARK A. MEYER, National Chairman of the Romanian-American Chamber of Commerce. President Bill Clinton appointed Alfred Moses as his first Ambassador to Romania (1994-1997), where he played a key role in helping the country move from its Communist past to democracy and to establish a free economy.
ALFRED H. MOSES is Chairman of UN Watch, past President of the American Jewish Committee, the author of several books, and also served as Special Counsel to President Carter (1980-1981) and Special Presidential Envoy for the Cyprus conflict (1999-2001). In his new book, Bucharest Diary: An American Ambassador’s Journey, Ambassador Moses includes first-hand accounts of the diplomacy, both public and private, that helped Romania recover from four decades of dictatorship and later join NATO and the European Union. For his efforts, he was made Commander of Romania’s Order of Merit.
