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 15 – NATO’s Future
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has come under increased scrutiny, not because NATO
troops are involved in the conflict, but because of its role in relations between Russia and its neighbors. Will expanding membership in NATO protect countries, or will it further provoke Russia?
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.
