Sarwar Kashmeri, an adjunct political science professor and applied research fellow with the Peace and War Center at Norwich University, introduced former U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel at a recent dinner and keynote address hosted by the Foreign Policy Association in New York City. Kashmeri is a fellow at the nearly 100-year-old nonprofit, which aims to raise “awareness, understanding and informed opinion of U.S. foreign policy and global issues.” Last fall, he organized a three-day US Grand Strategy Conference at Norwich on “The Future of American Leadership in the World.” Hagel, a former two-term senator from Nebraska, served two years as the 24th U.S. Secretary of Defense. He redesigned his post in February 2015.
