In honor of this milestone, OSIPP has designated the current period through March 2015 as the "20th Anniversary Year," and has planned a series of commemorative activities.

This lecture, the 4th commemorative activity in the series, features a lecture from David M. Malone, a Canadian author regarding international security and development, diplomat, and, currently, the UN Under-Secretary General, Rector of the United Nations University in Tokyo.
