Abstract: Prof Zelikow discusses the way that a country's 'foreign policy' agenda is increasingly an agenda for 'domestic policy,' and what this means for the way we think about global problems and organize to work on them.
Philip Zelikow is the White Burkett Miller Professor of History at the University of Virginia, where he is also the dean leading the University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Prof Zelikow began his professional career as a trial and appellate lawyer in Texas. He later received his PhD from Tufts University's Fletcher School. As a career diplomat he was posted overseas and in Washington, including service on the US National Safety Council staff for President George H. W. Bush.
After teaching at Harvard University during the 1990s, Prof Zelikow went to Virginia, where he has directed a research center and teaches modern world history and modern US history. His books include Germany Unified and Europe Transformed: A Study in Statecraft (with Condoleezza Rice), The Kennedy Tapes: Inside the White House during the Cuban Missile Crisis (with Ernest May), and Essence of Decision (with Graham Allison). He has recently written additional material for a 2011 edition of the 9/11 Commission report and is currently completing American Foreign Policy: An Interpretive History (to be published by W. W. Norton).
Prof Zelikow has taken two leaves from academia to return full-time to government service. In 2003-04 he directed the 9/11 Commission. In 2005-07 he was Counselor of the Department of State, a deputy to Secretary Rice. He has been appointed by US President Barack Obama as a member of the President's Intelligence Advisory Board. He is also on the advisory board for global development of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
