U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has appointed Stephen W. Bosworth, dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, as the United States special envoy on North Korea. The official announcement was made in February 2009. He will replace Christopher Hill, the Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs. Dean Bosworth will continue to serve as dean while taking on this new role.
Dean Bosworth has been a close contributor and a friend to the Sylff community. He actively participated in the Sylff regional forum in 2007 when the Fletcher School served as host. The Fletcher School is also the first ever institution to receive a Sylff endowment in 1987.
