2022 is a critical year — Xi Jing Ping is leader for ten years, Putin for twenty years, Biden will be one year in office. What are their domestic and international accomplishments? Has Biden’s tenure changed world affairs? Is America weaker or stronger? What are the prospects for global politics and economics?
How will global hot spots evolve? In the middle east, the Arab Spring is a decade old. Has it affected war and peace? Iran’s nuclear situation will likely climax. In Asia, Chinese policy is disturbing the region and the Sino-Indian border is explosive. Will America’s policy focus on Asia impact on this? Russia is heavily arming the east European border, heavily arming the Ukraine border and moving troops into Kazakhstan. Are these signs of coming conflict or can war be averted?
In domestic politics, the midterm election season is underway. Will key Supreme Court decisions affect this? Is the Biden presidency at stake? Elsewhere, important issues will crowd the agenda. Who will be winners and losers?
Professor Ralph Buultjens will discuss these and other vital situations as we begin a fateful political year.
Sessions will take place on Tuesdays, January 18, 25, February 1, 8 and 15 from 10-11:30 am ET.
