Odyssey summer 2020: Global Flashpoints

Iranian attempts to enrich uranium, the Islamic State's deadly presence in Afghanistan, the proliferation of Chinese military bases in disputed waters, and spring human rights abuses by Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela represent merely a sample of the foreign policy challenges facing the United States. Can the United States prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon? In Afghanistan, as the "endless war" continues, how will the Islamic State's influence affect communities such as Hazara, where minority Shiites live? What are China's worldwide ambitions? And how long will the Maduro regime in Venezuela cling to power? Join us as our speakers explain not only what the United States is up against in these specific regions but also what the international community should do about these emerging concerns.
