  • A Rage for Order: The Middle East in Turmoil, from Tahrir Square to ISIS | 05/10/16 (with live webcast) Robert F. Worth In 2011, a generation of young Arabs, from Egypt to Yemen, insisted on a new ethos of common citizenship. Five years later, their utopian aspirations have taken on a darker cast as old divides reemerge and deepen. But lost among the talk of dictators, foreign intervention, and terrorists, is the plight of the average citizens of these countries. What are their stories? How do they see their future after years of discord? (Public Affairs Program)
  • ISIS: The Caliphate at Two | 05/12/16 (with live webcast) Michael Weiss The Caliphate declared by ISIS is now two years old. What makes ISIS so seemingly successful and what are its goals? How has ISIS spread so effectively to other regions? What can the U.S. and others do to stem the tide? In conversation with James Ketterer, dean of international studies at Bard College, Mr. Weiss will discuss the current situation with ISIS, the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Iraq, and the broader regional and international implications. (Ethics Matter Series)
  • Threats and Opportunities on the Korean Peninsula | 05/17/16 (with live webcast) Gheewhan Kim, Scott A. Snyder, Sue Mi Terry South Korea has one of the world's largest economies, a dynamic culture that sets trends all over the world, and an increasingly important geopolitical presence on the world stage. But above the 39th parallel, North Korea is as isolated, oppressive, and dangerous as ever. Should the United States and its East Asian allies be worried about this new round of nuclear threats from Pyongyang? Are negotiations possible with Kim Jong-un? What's China's role? And what is the real political effect of the North Korean menace on Seoul? (Public Affairs Program)
  • Return to Cold War | 05/23/16 (with live webcast) Robert H. Legvold Does the current crisis in U.S.-Russia relations match the depth and scale of the contest that dominated the international system in the second half of the 20th century? What caused the initial success, notably in arms control agreements such as New START, to go awry? How might momentum toward a more positive U.S.-Russian relationship be regained? Robert Legvold will answer these questions and more. (U.S. Global Engagement Program)
  • The Next Pandemic: On the Front Lines Against Humankind's Gravest Dangers | 05/25/16 (with live webcast) Ali S. Khan In more than 20 years at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Ali S. Khan found that rogue microbes will always be a problem, but outbreaks are often caused by people. We make mistakes, politicize emergencies, and, too often, fail to imagine the consequences of our actions. With the Zika virus as the newest threat, are we prepared for the next pandemic? What can we learn from Ebola, SARS, and other modern outbreaks? (Public Affairs Program)
  • Immigrant Inclusion: What Cities Can Teach a World in Crisis | 06/07/16 (with live webcast) Nisha Agarwal BY INVITATION ONLY
