Dr. Earl H. Fry served as the Fulbright Bicentennial Chair in American Studies at the University of Helsinki.  During this period he conducted extensive research on how well prepared Europe and the United States are to compete in a world where perhaps half of global trade, investment, people, and GDP will be concentrated in Asia by mid-century. His lecture focuses on specific challenges and solutions for the residents of Europe and the U.S.

Enhancing the American Political and Governmental Systems—Fry will highlight some of the special challenges facing Washington, D.C. and the U.S. political and governmental systems.  In his presentation, he will focus on these challenges and offer specific recommendations for surmounting each obstacle.
