Important Update: 92Y remains open
Does not include service & handling fees, if applicable.
The nature of global events suggests a new period of challenge and stress.
In the middle east, the Israel-Palestinian crisis symbolizes major changes. In Asia, the three great powers — China, India, Japan — are realigning relationships. In Europe, the Merkel era is over and increased populism, pressures by Putin and new EU-British tensions indicate a time of transition. Similar happenings are unfolding in Latin America and Africa. Most significantly, the Biden administration is embarking on a new foreign policy as the United States remakes itself. How will transnational events (e.g. Pandemics, climate change, refugees, digital technology) reshape the global prospect?
Will this create more confrontation or cooperation among nations? Who will be winners and losers?
Participants will obtain a greater understanding of these issues in the context of current world affairs.
Professor Ralph Buultjens will discuss these and other issues in this new online course.
SESSIONS ARE FROM 10 am to 11:30 am.
