February 8 | Chat & Chowder with Mariana Budjeryn
Join us for this installment of our popular Chat & Chowder series, featuring Mariana Budjeryn, Senior Research Associate with the Project on Managing the Atom at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center, in discussion of her recent book, Inheriting the Bomb: The Collapse of the USSR and the Nuclear Disarmament of Ukraine.
Chat & Chowder programs are an excellent opportunity to engage with expert speakers and to network with other globally-oriented participants in an informal environment. Each event features a presentation, audience Q&A, dedicated time for networking, and (of course!) a selection of chowders and beverages.
Advance registration is required. We cannot accommodate walk-ins for the in-person program. This program will take place in-person from 6:00-7:30 PM, and will be live-streamed from 6:15-7:15 PM ET.
February 15 | Great Decisions | China and the U.S.
For the past ten years, the United States and China have been locked in a competition for who has the greatest global influence. One major point of contention is the status of Taiwanese sovereignty, which has become even more relevant recently with the possibility that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine may prompt China to take similar action regarding Taiwan. How will the United States engage a China which is increasingly seeking to expand its sphere of influence?
Join us for a timely discussion of this topic with David Lampton, Senior Research Fellow at the SAIS Foreign Policy Institute and Professor Emeritus at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. The program will feature expert remarks from Mr. Lampton, live audience Q&A, and time for networking and discussion with other globally-oriented participants.
This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
