Join us for an afternoon with Fiona Hill, as she joins us live via video link from Durham’s twin city Tübingen, Germany.
Dr Fiona Hill grew up in a working-class mining community in Bishop Auckland, County Durham and attended Bishop Barrington Comprehensive school. Fiona’s subsequent career saw her move to the United States, first to study at Harvard University and later to work as Deputy Assistant to the President of the United States and as Senior Director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council from 2017-2019. Her testimony during Trump’s impeachment hearings made international news.
Fiona will be talking about the current political situation between Russia and Ukraine as well as her recent book There is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the 21st Century, and reflecting on her inspiring career and her journey from County Durham to the White House.
