Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Nicholas Eberstadt will address the ICAS Winter Symposium slated on March 1, 2019 in Washington DC.

Other confirmed speakers include ICAS Fellow Larry Niksch and ICAS Fellow Joshua Stanton, respectively.

Nick Eberstadt holds the Henry Wendt Chair in Political Economy at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where Nick researches and writes extensively on demographics and economic development, as well as international security in the Korean peninsula and Asia. Domestically, he focuses on poverty and social well-being. Nick is also a senior adviser to the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR).

His many books and monographs include “Poverty in China” (IDI, 1979); “The End of North Korea” (AEI Press, 1999); and “Russia’s Peacetime Demographic Crisis” (NBR, 2010). Nick's book “Men Without Work: America’s Invisible Crisis” (Templeton Press, 2016) sparked a national discussion about a major but neglected social problem in modern America.

Nick has offered invited testimony before Congress on numerous occasions and has served as consultant or adviser for a variety of units within the US government. He serves inter alia as a founding director of the US Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK).

He earned his A.B. (economics), M.P.A. (public administration), and Ph.D. (political economy and government) from Harvard University. In addition, Nick holds a master of science from the London School of Economics. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Bradley Prize.

Nick addressed ICAS audience on the Hill twice in the past; ICAS Fall Symposium 2002 and ICAS Winter Symposium 2006, respectively.

Thank you.
