Trans-national Crime and the role of Interpol Executive Exchange Series

204 Maxwell Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Michael Olmsted will focus on the challenge posed by increased international travel, international banking and the internet. He will look at the trends in trans-national crime and what needs to be done to resist, investigate, and prosecute such crimes as well as the role that INTERPOL could play in that process (and equally importantly, the roles that INTERPOL does not play). About the speaker: Mr. Olmsted joined INTERPOL in 2009 as Head of the Transition Team to establish the International Anti-corruption Academy in Austria. He is a 23-year veteran of the Department of Justice, where he was attorney-advisor on the Iran-Contra investigation, assisted in the prosecution of Manual Noriega, prosecuted principals for the purported charity Help the Needy (for illegally sending into Iraq) and initiated fraud investigations relating to the Dept. of Defense contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Please RSVP to Elizabeth Ryan at: *this is a brown bag lunch event, drinks and snacks will be provided*

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
