A Panel Discussion

Regardless of which candidate prevails on November 8, the next President of the United States (U.S.) will inherit a complicated international landscape and mounting global problems. The Syrian civil war shows no signs of ending, with a U.S. brokered cease-fire having recently failed and ISIS continuing attacks in the Middle East and around the globe. The United Kingdom will begin Brexit talks with the European Union in early 2017, testing the strength of both a key ally and stability of a key trade partner. Meanwhile, the U.S. relationships with China and Russia continue to betray tensions, as the Chinese military expands and Putin's ambitions grow. And while Latin America is dealing with the fallout from the end of its commodities fueled boom, migration out of the African continent continues unabated.


What should the main international priorities be for the next U.S. President? Join us, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, International Partners in Mission, and the Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle Eastern Studies (NOCMES) for a free conversation on the foreign policy issues facing our next president.


Panelists include:

Anand Gopal, journalist and author of No Good Men Among the Living: America, the Taliban and the War Through Afghan Eyes

Kathryn Lavelle, Ph.D., Ellen and Dixon Long Professor in World Affairs, Case Western Reserve University

Qingshan Forrest Tan, Ph.D., Professor of Political Science, Cleveland State University
