Naples Council
World Affairs
Our mission is to educate, inspire and engage our community in international affairs and critical global issues

Summer salutations one and all, I hope this finds you safe and well, wherever you may be.

Perhaps you have been thinking about world affairs in-between your newly found skills and interests while living in quarantine, so we would be pleased to offer some ideas for a share of your time and hope that you will find an opportunity to enjoy them. 

There are an enormous number of webinars offered by experts on foreign policy and opinions in the arena of world affairs; so to help you search some of them out we have posted a list of resources from the many think tanks and universities along with their web addresses. The resource list represents the “home base” of our many wonderful speakers who have enriched our understanding of world affairs over the years. We encourage you to check out their websites for offerings. Click here to see the resource list.

Of course you know that we are affiliated with the World Affairs Councils of America,, and many of the councils around the country have been offering some interesting ‘ZOOM’ presentations. We suggest that you check on their website for listings of current events, you could be occupied all day every day if so inclined! 

Meanwhile, we would like to call your attention to a conversation between Ambassador Christopher Hill and Prof. Suisheng (Sam) Zhao on ‘Getting the U.S. and China Relationship on the Right Track.’

Ambassador Christopher Hill, former Dean of the Korbel School of International Relations at Denver University, spoke to us last on November 2018 on North Korea. Ambassador Hill recently spoke with Prof. Suisheng (Sam) Zhao, Director of the Center for China-U.S. Cooperation. They discussed U.S. China - How to Get on the Right Track.  Click to hear .

Finally, we are pleased to include an article that appeared in the online forum:
