In this eight-week series, participants gather to discuss key foreign policy issues facing the world today. Led by volunteer moderators, participants will engage in moderated discussions with their fellow citizens. This year’s topics will include Mideast Realignment, Climate Technology and Competition, Science across Borders, US-China Trade Rivalry, NATO’s Future, Understanding Indonesia, High Seas Treaty, and Pandemic Preparedness. This year’s series will be held in person at the Aspen Meadows.
February 1 – Science across Borders
Scientific advances benefit from collaboration between researchers, but what happens when material, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) is controversial and important to a nation’s national security? Is there a middle ground between sharing information and denying access? How can we regulate cooperation?
Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 18, running through Thursday, March 7 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.
Registration will open in November.
*Topics and the dates they are presented are subject to change.
