Maps & Directions

World order is never in stasis for too long. And indeed, we seem to be witnessing a historic shift now. The relatively stable decades after World War II saw gains for global democracies, rapid economic growth fueled by globalization, and the birth of the Internet. But they also saw the speeding of global warming, widening inequality, and the scourge of transnational terrorism. The institutions and agreements that have grounded the modern international order are showing signs of weakness, while illiberal sentiment gathers strength across the West. Nationalism is having a moment. Europe is having an identity crisis. And China is challenging the dominance of the United States. How did we get here? What’s next?

Come to the WACHH presentation of Ambassador Doug Lute on Friday, October 2nd at 10:00 am. Ambassador Lute is the former United States Permanent Representative to the North Atlantic Council, NATO’s standing political body.  Appointed by President Obama, he assumed the Brussels-based post in 2013 and served until 2017.   During this period he was instrumental in designing and implementing the 28-nation Alliance responses to the most severe security challenges in Europe since the end of the Cold War.  For more information, please visit https://wachh.org/event-3840607
