June 14 | WorldBoston | Drug Policy in Latin America | Great Decisions

The issue of migration to the United States from Latin America has overshadowed the war on drugs, which has been underway for decades with little signs of progress. What are the roots and the bureaucratic logic behind today's dominant drug policies in Latin America? Is it time to reconsider punitive drug policies that disrupt supply chains and punish drug possession?

Join WorldBoston for a discussion of this complex topic with Dr. Evan Ellis, Research Professor of Latin American Studies at the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, on June 14th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM ET at the Boston Public Library. The program will also be streamed to Zoom from 6:00 to 7:00 PM ET.

June 14 | World Affairs Council of Philadelphia | The Future of the European Project

Presented in partnership with The Philadelphia Orchestra.

With Europe facing a multitude of challenges—from Russian aggression in Ukraine to varying degrees of success when it comes to pandemic recovery; from concerns around the continent’s energy strategy to a rising tide of right-wing populism across the continent—the European project faces what feels like a highly uncertain future. 

At the same time, the structure of the EU has brought the intended peace and prosperity to the continent as largely intended, and they are leading some of the world’s solutions to climate change.  Europe is home to many of America’s key trading partners and crucial allies.  The cultural ties that bind Europe and the U.S. – including but not limited to higher education, innovation, and the arts – remain strong and nimble, as evidenced by The Philadelphia Orchestra’s European Tour this summer, with performances in Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, France, and Great Britain.

Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and The Philadelphia Orchestra for a discussion about the European Project and what can be done for a secure future.
