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 22 – Understanding Indonesia
Despite its large size, Indonesia remains virtually invisible to most Americans. But as one of the world’s largest democracies, the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation, and as an economic driver of ASEAN, why does it fly below the radar? What are current issues in U.S.-Indonesian relations, and what role can the country play in Asia?
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.
