Spring 2019 Conference

Historical conflicts between regional neighbors continue to unfold in the 21st century. Power dynamics in the Middle East, sovereignty issues in East Asia, territory seizure in Eastern Europe, and border tensions in the Americas consume contemporary politics. The Council's 36th Annual Spring Conference will focus on contentious relationships between Iran and Saudi Arabia; the People's Republic of China and Taiwan; Ukraine and Russia; the U.S. and Mexico; and Colombia and Venezuela.
