Peter Krogh Foreign Affairs Digital Archives

The Dean Peter Krogh Foreign Affairs Digital Archives were created by the Georgetown University Library in collaboration with Dr. Peter Krogh, Dean and Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service. The site preserves for future generations more than two hundred episodes from three television series moderated by Dean Krogh between 1981 and 2005: American Interests, World Beat, and Great Decisions (the latter in collaboration with the Foreign Policy Association).

This collection illuminates for teachers, students, and the general public foreign policy issues that figured prominently toward the end of the 20th century. The programs, which feature leading foreign policy figures (e.g., King Hussein of Jordan, Henry Kissinger, and Zbigniew Brzezinski), cover topics that remain highly relevant, including nuclear proliferation, global warming, the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, and international terrorism. As the famous popular historian, David McCullough, has observed: “There really is no such thing as the past.”

The Yahoo! Fellowship

Thanks to the generous support of Yahoo! from 2007-2015, eight different Yahoo! Fellows at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service have had the opportunity to explore the relationship between new technology and international values.

Yahoo! Fellows’ projects have looked at Internet and communications technologies topics such as free expression, government regulation, citizenship and privacy. Yahoo! Fellows have also explored new communications technologies and the diffusion of information in rapidly changing global environments whether within emerging regional powers like Brazil, Russia, India or China, within states in transition such as Cuba and the post-Arab Spring Middle East, or between states.

Each Yahoo! Fellow has been hosted by the SFS Institute for the Study of Diplomacy  and joined a community of senior fellows, associates and student fellows drawn from the University and from the U.S. and other governments.

The SFS Master of Science in Foreign Service Program provides the locus for the applied curricular and research support activities associated with the fellowship. Each year two MSFS graduate students have been selected as Yahoo! Graduate Fellows to engage in study and research associated with the Yahoo! Fellow’s focus area as well with in other faculty.
