Gary Hart

Ex-senator to discuss search for
security in a 'fragmented century'

Gary Hart, former presidential candidate and senator from Colorado, will present the annual Coca-Cola World Fund at Yale Lecture at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2, at the Yale Center for International and Area Studies (YCIAS), 34 Hillhouse Ave.

Hart's speech, which is free and open to the public, is titled "The Search for a New Definition of Security in a New Fragmented Century."

A graduate of the Yale Law School ('64 LL.B.) and the Yale Divinity School ('61 B.D.), Hart was first elected to the Senate in 1974 and was re-elected in 1980. During his 12 years as senator, he served on the Armed Services Committee, where he specialized in nuclear arms control and naval issues, and was an original founder of the military reform caucus. He also served on the Senate Environment Committee, the Budget Committee and the Intelligence Oversight Committee. He ran for the Democratic nomination in the 1988 presidential campaign and was leading in the polls but resigned from the race after allegations of an affair generated a massive media frenzy. He has since spoken out about media handling of such issues with respect to other high-profile politicians.

Since retiring from the Senate in 1987, Hart has been extensively involved in international law and business, and has served as a strategic adviser to major U.S. corporations. He was recently appointed by Secretary of Defense William Cohen to the U.S. National Security Commission for the 21st Century. Hart is currently counsel to Coudert Brothers, an international law firm with offices in 26 cities around the world.

Hart was a visiting fellow and the McCallum Memorial Lecturer at Oxford University in 1996 and was Regents Lecturer at the University of California in 1998. He was a founding member of the board of directors of the U.S./Russia Investment Fund and continues to travel extensively in the former Soviet Union, Europe, East Asia and Latin America. Since 1988, he has been active in negotiating groundbreaking joint venture agreements in the Commonwealth of Independent States. In 1991, he published a book on the former Soviet Union titled "Russia Shakes the World: The Second Russian Revolution."

The Coca-Cola World Fund at Yale was established in 1992 to support scholarly endeavors that enhance collaboration among specialists in the fields of international relations, international law, and the management of international enterprises and organizations. The activities of the fund -- which include an annual lecture, visiting fellowships, conferences, and student research and internship projects -- are cosponsored by the YCIAS, the Law School and the School of Management.

YCIAS is the University's principal agency for encouraging and coordinating teaching and research on international affairs, societies and cultures around the world. The Center seeks to make understanding the world outside the borders of the United States, and America's role in it, an integral part of the liberal education and professional training at Yale.
