What lessons can we draw from the last decade? What do we expect from American domestic and foreign policy in the next decade? Reed College's "Reflecting on the '90s: Politics and Policy in the New Millennium," an exploration of these questions, continues this spring with a distinguished group of experts with diverse perspectives on public policy.

The public policy lecture series is sponsored by the Elizabeth C. Ducey Political Science Lecture Fund, the Bernard Goldhammer Lecture Fund, and the Reed College political science and economics departments.
