Events | Headline and Cultural Forums
Given the range of global challenges and pivotal decision-making on the table around the US's role on the international stage, how are key thinkers and policy experts in Washington, DC navigating the landscape of uncertainty? From Russia, the "wall" between the US and Mexico, international trade, ISIS, an anticipated defense build-up (accompanied by possible reductions in diplomatic and international aid programs), to climate change and the Paris accords, what's the temperature in DC and is there a clear path forward? Join us for a candid conversation between Fred Kempe, resident and chief executive officer of the Atlantic Council, and Derrick Olsen, president of the World Affairs Council of Oregon, on horizons for US global engagement and the role of internationally-focused think-tanks like the Atlantic Council in shaping that vision.
