The civil wars in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Libya have had devastating effects on the populations in these countries, and they have drawn in most of the regional and international powers into a destructive conflict trap.

Luncheon and Presentation
North Korea is years beyond the nuclear “breakout” the US so fears in Iran. Yet, there are similarities in how the US strategy should be shaped to reduce the threat of a nuclear crisis with both countries. Is the US safer today or more at risk following President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and meeting with Kim Jong-un?
