About Tim Richardson

Are the borders between different cultures disappearing due to the rise of the internet and social media? Or do cultures just become more detached from each other? Tim Richardson will talk about differences between cultures.

Tim has spent most of his career in the U.S. diplomatic corps in such far-flung and diverse postings as Afghanistan, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Malaysia and the Republic of Georgia. Throughout his diplomatic career, he has worked with people at all levels of society, from senior government officials to activists to refugees, often discussing the differences that separate us and what brings us together. Now living in Brussels, Tim is the Counselor for Political and Economic Affairs at the U.S. Embassy to the Kingdom of Belgium
