The Foreign Ministers of Poland and India were guests on the Columbia campus last week on separate occasions. Dariusz Rosati, the Polish Foreign Minister, spoke about the economic impact of Poland's admission into NATO and the European Union as the guest of the Institute on East Central Europe at the School of International and Public Affairs. Iqbal Shervani, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs of India, celebrated a $1.1 million fund-raising campaign to establish a visiting professorship in Indian political economy at Columbia. The money was raised through private donations and events spearheaded by the Indian American community and others in New York.
