With the emergence of social media and the 24 hour news cycle, geopolitics has infiltrated our daily lives in a way not seen before. As our access to information on trending topics related to climate change, trade wars, democracy, human rights, terrorism, and threats to peace grows, so does our need to understand the fundamental connections that link each to one another. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Richard Haass for a robust survey of the current geopolitical landscape and for ways in which we can become more engaged global citizens, equipped with a comprehensive understanding of the complex dynamics. Moderated by Jane Harman, director and president and CEO of the Wilson Center, an internationally recognized authority on U.S. and global security issues, foreign relations, and lawmaking.
