Description

The United States faces a world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Challenges come from numerous factors and actors — including the growing power of China and India, a shift in power from Atlantic to Pacific regions, North Korea’s rogue weapons program, cyberwarfare, humanitarian and natural disasters, and terrorist organizations. Discuss new security-policy strategies with experts in the field.

“The two days I spent in class refreshed my knowledge of national security strategy and reignited my interest in history, security and policy. I found the regional overviews particularly interesting. They gave me a good sense of the politics of the different areas.” – Class participant
