General Wesley Clark welcoming remarks with introduction by Mr. Richard Lukaj
There are few individuals more accomplished as leaders than General Wesley Clark — or who have thought more deeply about the essential elements of successful leadership. Whether as Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, where he led NATO forces to victory in Operation Allied Force, saving 1.5 million Albanians from ethnic cleansing, or a military career involved multiple commands and spanned three decades that earned him the Bronze Star and Silver Star and a Purple Heart, a Presidential Medal of Freedom, to consulting businesses, or high-profile television commentary, General Clark’s approach to leadership has been distinguished by a clear philosophy that is as relevant and impactful for boardrooms as battlefields.
Sir Noel Malcolm Lecture
Sir Noel Malcolm with introduction by Dr. Elez Biberaj
This was a rare opportunity to hear Sir Noel Malcolm’s account — one of the most singular and influential voices and world’s leading authorities on Albanian history and culture origins — presenting a staggering archival achievement, a work of astonishing (if, at times, overwhelming) richness and detail that incorporates “the all-too-neglected Albanian thread that is woven into the history of Europe” and beyond.
Sir Noel Malcolm is Senior Research Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford and a Fellow of the British Academy. His work has ranged widely in European history and intellectual history, with a particular interest in the history of political philosophy. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2014, in recognition for services to scholarship, journalism, and European history.
