Crisis Briefing: Three Issue Areas Facing American Leadership
Thursday, September 20, 2012 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
The Center for International Studies invites you to “Crisis Briefing: Three Issue Areas Facing American Leadership” at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 20 in Ahern Room, Crooker Center.
As the United States heads into the November elections, multiple immediate and potential crises are emerging in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, and Asia. American national interests are entwined in each of these issues and they are stock speaking points on the campaign trail. The latest wave of protests and attacks throughout the Middle East and North Africa generate new pessimism about the future of the Arab Spring. China’s own leadership transition has faced recent uncertainties and is complicated by increased tensions between China and Japan over the Senkaku Islands. The Eurozone continues to face popular protest and sporadic violence over economic crisis and reform.
Please join three area specialists from the Center for International Studies for a briefing about these unfolding issues; the challenges these represent to the United States; and short-term scenarios.
