About this Event:
A new year has begun, and in our rapidly evolving world that means a whole new host of global challenges are just around the corner. What are the possible places, conflicts, and upheavals Americans should be on the lookout for in the coming year? What global trends should we expect? What countries will likely be undergoing the biggest social or political alterations? What will be next year’s biggest world players? And what will all of this mean for Americans at home?
Join us as Stewart Patrick sets a global forecast for 2018, what’s coming and how America will respond to it. Copies of his most recent book, The Sovereignty Wars, will be available for purchase and signings at the event.
Stewart Patrick is the director of the International Institutions and Global Governance Program at the Council on Foreign Relations. His areas of expertise include multilateral cooperation on global issues; U.S. policy toward international institutions, including the United Nations; and the challenges posed by fragile and post–conflict states. From September 2002 to January 2005, Dr. Patrick served on the secretary of state’s policy planning staff, with lead staff responsibility for U.S. policy toward Afghanistan and a range of global and transnational issues, including refugees and migration, international law enforcement, and global health affairs. He is the author, coauthor, or editor of five books.
