Event Description

In the late thirteenth century, Marco Polo began a decades-long trek from Venice to China. Now, in the early twenty-first century, the Chinese regime has proposed a land-and-maritime Silk Road that duplicates exactly the route Marco Polo traveled and is changing America's ability to influence the power balance in the region.

What are the principles that should shape America's role in a turbulent world?

Robert Kaplan is a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and a senior advisor at Eurasia Group. He is the best-selling author of The Revenge of Geography and The Coming Anarchy.

The Korean Peninsula: One of America’s Greatest Foreign Policy Challenges, with Christopher R. Hill

There are few, if any, who understand the Korean Peninsula situation better than Ambassador Hill. He served as U.S. ambassador to South Korea and assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, and was head of the U.S. delegation to the 2005 six-party talks aimed at resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis. In this wise and witty talk he explains where we are today, how we got here, and where we're likely to go in the future.

Global Ethics Weekly: Foreign Policy After the Midterms, with Nikolas Gvosdev

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev and host Alex Woodson discuss the state of foreign policy after the midterm elections. How can newcomers like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have a tangible effect in Washington? Will Democrats be able to unite behind a platform? Plus, they look ahead to 2020 and speak about Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Nikki Haley and how American values will play into the future of international relations.

Russia's Information Warfare, with Molly McKew

"You saw the Russians start to pay attention to social media, in particular after Obama's election, because the way that he was elected was new to them. They always watch our elections very closely. So you see them toying around in this whole space of the sphere of information, the use of information as a tool of political warfare, developing new tools." Molly McKew delves into Russian disinformation campaigns in the U.S. and elsewhere.
