Event: Conferences

Fall 2016 Conference

When the 45th President of the United States takes office, he or she will be confronted with multiple foreign policy challenges, including the worldwide terrorist threat, the carnage in Syria, the disintegration of Venezuela, a fractious Europe faced with Russia’s imperialistic ambitions and the ramifications of the Brexit vote, and the nuclear menace that is North Korea.

The Council of American Ambassadors has brought together leading commentators from across the political spectrum to discuss these challenges and offer possible policy prescriptions to deal with them.

The Schedule of Events follows.
