About This Event

At a time when our globalized world is changing faster than ever, the interconnectivity of events and societies is increasingly evident. Yet as some political leaders resist the forces of globalization, uncertainty is increasing about the longevity of the institutions that have sustained the global order for decades. How did we get to this situation and where do we go from here? Join Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass and Chicago Council on Global Affairs President Ivo Daalder for a conversation on the world’s biggest challenges and how they travel beyond borders.

Richard Haass’ new book, The World: A Brief Introduction, is available for purchase from the Book Cellar.
