Career diplomat Christopher R. Hill ’74, H’14, writes of the need for international consensus to resolve conflicts in Aleppo, Syria, and Mosul, Iraq.

“[U]ntil Russia, the US, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and others (Europe, is anyone home?) can come together around a set of principles that steer the region toward peace, the carnage will continue,” he writes. Read his Project Syndicate piece, “Masters of the War in Syria and Iraq.”

Hill is dean of the University of Denver’s Korbel School of International Studies. He previously served a number of diplomatic roles, including that of Ambassador to Iraq, South Korea, Macedonia and Poland; U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia; U.S. special envoy for Kosovo; and negotiator of the Dayton Peace Accords. Hill was also the chief U.S. negotiator with North Korea from 2005-2009.
