Join us for a fascinating evening as Ms. Wilson discusses the Syrian crisis from the perspective of a diplomat with personal experience of the issues.

Susan Wilson is a career diplomat currently serving as the Principal Officer at the U.S. Consulate in Edinburgh. Before moving to Edinburgh, Ms. Wilson served as the Public Affairs Officer in Adana, Turkey where she focused primarily on encouraging peace in the southeast of Turkey and on the effects in Turkey from the crisis in Syria. She has also served in Slovenia and Jamaica as a Foreign Service Officer and in Uzbekistan as a member of the Peace Corps.
