Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will participate in the McCain Institute's annual Sedona Forum on Saturday.
The McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University announced Clinton's participation Thursday morning.
"From her years of service as first lady, in the U.S. Senate and at the State Department, one would be hard-pressed to find a leader with Secretary Clinton's informed perspective on the many challenges facing America across the globe," Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, said.
The Sedona Forum is the McCain Institute's annual gathering of national and international thought-leaders, decision-makers, business leaders, philanthropists, activists and experts. They discuss approaches and solutions to real-world problems from the starting assumption of character-driven leadership and core democratic values, according to an institute news release.
The Sedona Forum 2014 will focus on "Crisis in the Middle East: Values, Strategy and Options," and will also include sessions on Russia and Ukraine and on combating human trafficking.
