Great Decisions Lecture: Nuclear Negotiations - Back to the Future?

Thu., March 21, 12-1:30 p.m.

Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them. The President has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021, the first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, and President Trump has decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. To what degree should past nuclear talks guide future U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations? Can the art of the deal apply to stabilizing our nuclear future?

@ Center for Divine Love: Empowerment Center, 3617 Wyoming Street
This is a look into the reality of the diamond trade and the real price of this seemingly innocent stone for millions of African people and others who live on the other end of the equation. And as reparations is becoming a pressing political question, this is also a call to action for white people to return diamonds and other stolen resources back to African people as a form of reparations and solidarity with black liberation. Keynote Speaker: Ticharwa Masimba, Economic Development Coordinator of the Black Power Blueprint Free

Great Decisions Lecture: The Rise of Populism in Europe

Thu., March 28, 12-1:30 p.m.

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States.

Great Decisions Lecture: Decoding U.S.-China Trade

Thu., April 4, 12-1:30 p.m.

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade. These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s. Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China. What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices? There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused. Free

Russia has been accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential elections in the United States and China is highly committed to using cyberspace as a tool of national policy.
