Perception may be reality, but what if it’s wrong, and worse, what if it’s dangerous?Powell2

Retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, will discuss U.S.-Iran relations in his talk “We Need Not Be Enemies: Iran and the U.S. in the 21st Century” as he speaks to the University of Houston Center for International and Comparative Studies (CICS).  The free event takes place at 5 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 7 in the Honors College Commons in the M.D. Anderson Library. 

“Our interpretations of one another are not just wrong, they are delusional,” Wilkerson said. “A win-win outcome stares both capitals in the face.  However, a history of mistrust, misinterpretation, bad policy and strained-to-no-relations, pushes heavily and compellingly against a sane and sound solution.”Powell1

The UH CICS provides the foundation for the study and debate of international and comparative studies. CICS is housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, with cooperation from the Bauer School of Business, the UH Law Center and other parts of the UH community. It aspires to create international leaders in all fields and disciplines.
