Global Conflicts: Are There Paths to Peace?

Global Conflicts: Are There Paths to Peace?

These are not the most peaceful of times. Terrorists rock parts of the Mideast, sow instability in Africa, and challenge us at home. Power struggles brew in the South China Sea, civil wars rage in Syria and Yemen, and cyber warfare pervades online. What’s next for ISIS? Might Russia provoke the US? Will Europe weather Brexit? What do we do about a nuclear Pyongyang? We’ll explore the conflict zones, the halls of power, and the migrant crises that mark instability and strife around the world, presenting vexing challenges to a new administration here at home.
