    Former FBI Director Robert Mueller delivers this year's Payne Lecture. His presentation covers the 12 years he spent leading the FBI in the aftermath of 9/11.

    The Payne Lectureship is sponsored by the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies. It is named for Frank E. Payne and Arthur W. Payne, brothers who gained an appreciation for global problems through their international business operations. The position is given to someone with an international reputation as a leader, with an emphasis on visionary thinking; a broad, practical grasp of a given field; and the capacity to clearly articulate an important perspective on the global community and its challenges.
