Upcoming Activities/Events and News:

October 31st: Dr. Tim Boersma: “The Geopolitics of Climate Change”. The Paris Agreement began the process, but what tough questions remain to actually translate this into a meaningful and pragmatic policy framework? Dr. Boersma, Senior Research Scholar at Columbia University, will discuss how politics, power and vested interests will inflence the outcome of the Paris and G20 talks in China.

November 14th: Prof. Jeremy Haft: “China on the Global Stage”. China remains an enigma in its foreign policy, economics and politics. Yet getting China “right” is more important today than ever as the threat level on all fronts seems to be so high. Prof. Haft’s remarks will assess the basis of China’s “superpower-status”, its economy and relationship with the U.S.

December 5th: Dr. Steven Cook: “Turkey’s Lost Democracy”. In 2005, Turkey began formal negotiations to join the European Union, but a little more than a decade later it looks less like a liberal democracy than a one-man electoral autocracy. What went wrong? What are the implications for the U.S. approach to Turkey and the future of its alliance with the West.
