The David A. Morse Lecture

About the Lectureship Series

Inaugurated in 1994, this lecture supports an annual meeting with a distinguished speaker. It honors the memory of lawyer, public servant, and internationalist David A. Morse, an active CFR member for nearly thirty years.

Speakers are invited to focus on one of Morse’s many concerns, which included North-South relations, human rights, international organizations and labor, conflict resolution, and relations with Asia. The lecture program is funded by gifts from CFR members and friends of the Morse family. To find out more about supporting CFR, click here.
