He was the White House aide, or Sherpa, for the annual G7 economic summits in Ottawa (1981), Versailles (1982), and Williamsburg (1983), and for the special summit with developing countries in Cancun (1982). He is a former member of the UN Committee for Development Planning and the U.S. Department of State’s Advisory Committee on International Investment. From 1977 to 1981, Nau served on the Board of Editors of the journal International Organization.
