Location
Greenleaf Conference Room (100A Jones Hall)

Michael Stewart will give a presentation discussing his experiences in the Foreign Service and the relevance of his background in Latin American Studies at Tulane to his career in the State Department. He will give special attention to his role in the recently signed United States/Mexico Agreement on the Management of Trans-boundary Oil and Gas Resources.

Stewart earned his M.A. in Latin American Studies from Tulane University in 1994 and has since gone on to a very successful career in the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Service. He has served overseas as a Consular Officer in São Paulo, Brazil and as an Economic Officer in La Paz, Bolivia. He more recently worked in Washington D.C. covering energy issues in the Western Hemisphere and is now managing the Energy Governance and Capacity Initiative (EGCI), which works to improve governance in the oil and gas sectors of a select group of emerging energy producing nations.

There will be a modest reception with light refreshments following the presentation.
