Foreign Policy Association’s FPA U program will be coming to New York City, Washington, D.C., and expanding to Boston!

The following information about the Foreign Policy Association's FPA U program and upcoming seminars is being posted here to IHEC Blog with permission.  I recently became aware of these low cost and excellent seminars and I think they may be of interest to IHEC Blog readers so I am posting about them today.  I just wish that FPA U expanded here to Chicago so I could attend!
