International Institute for Strategic Studies Presents: A Tumultuous Transition

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Student Ambassadors Program is hosting “A Tumultuous Transition: Reactions from Friends, Foes, and the Ramifications for International Security”.

During this webinar, a panel of IISS experts will discuss the transition into the new American administration. The panel will consider the unprecedented U.S. capitol insurrection and the events that took place during the formal transition from the Trump administration to the Biden administration and the broad reactions of world leaders and the world population.  Presenters will also discuss the global and regional security considerations affecting a pre-occupied and internally-focused US that will be confronted with demands from an international order in disarray in a post-pandemic world. See the list of presenters below for more information.

The webinar will be on Thursday, February 25, 2021, from 12:30 pm-1:30 pm. RSVP is required.

Note: This event is open to current undergraduate and graduate students only. Please use your university email when registering.
