February 6: Red Sea Security
The Red Sea has remained vital for global trade since the time of ancient Egypt. Once home to the spice trade, the Red Sea now sees millions of barrels of oil a day transported across its waters. With major nations like China, France, Italy, and the U.S. building large ports and bases in the region, what does the future of the region look like? How important is Red Sea security for global security? Can the region be a place of global cooperation?

Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 23, running through Thursday, March 12 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.

Fee: $225, includes all sessions, readings and light refreshments.
