The 2017-2018 season of the Great Falls Forum kicks off on Thursday, September 21st, featuring Ian Catlett, Attorney-Adviser with the U.S. Department of State, with a talk entitled “East Africa Security and Justice and the U.S. Role Overseas.” The program will take place from 12 noon to 1 PM in Callahan Hall at the Lewiston Public Library, and is co-sponsored by Maine Community Integration.

Ian M. Catlett joined the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs/Overseas Citizen Services as an Attorney-Adviser in February 2017. He first joined the U.S. Department of State in 2010, and worked as a Program Officer, Iraq Justice Team Lead, and Africa Division Chief for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
