Alejandro Wolff, the U.S. ambassador to Chile, will give a free public talk on Tuesday at the UC Davis School of Law about the United States’ relationship with that country — and “the special role of California” in it. He will speak at 4:30 p.m. in King Hall’s Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom.
A UCLA graduate, Wolff has served in the State Department since 1979. His Washington, D.C., assignments have included policy planning, working in the Office of Soviet Union Affairs and acting as executive assistant to Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. In addition to Chile, he has served the department in Algeria, Morocco, Cyprus, Brussels and France.
He served as deputy U.S. representative to the United Nations and served as the acting representative after the resignation of John Bolton in 2006.
