World Affairs Forum: 'Allies and Alliances in a Turbulent World'

March 22 - 24 | UAS Egan Lecture Hall

Click here for a schedule and speaker details

European nations are facing great internal challenges in maintaining a sustainable European Union, while simultaneously facing the external reality that America’s contribution to world order is changing. As the new U.S. administration questions institutions like NATO while advancing an 'America first' philosophy, US leadership in defense, international law, economics, trade, and social policy is shifting away from the decades-old foundation constructed after World War II. Hence, where is Europe going under the changing world order; what will be the role of the U.S., and what will be the new allies and alliances in a turbulent world?

Forum speakers will describe the U.S. rise to undisputed world leader following World War II, and the institutions developed to protect western democracies; the challenges facing Europe today, their perception of America’s shift in foreign policy; and international institutions' reaction to these changes -particularly in the areas of defense, trade and social policy. As America's world leadership grows less undisputed, how will other nations fill the void?

Presented in partnership with the University of Alaska Southeast.

All of our speaker events are free and open to the public, so come on over, we'd love to see you.
