If you are following the fate of the Iran Nuclear Deal this will be an important source. President Trump has just announced a plan to refuse to certify Iranian compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) negotiated between Iran and the United Kingdom, France, the U.S., China, Russia, Germany and the EU and signed in November of 2015.
In search of greater understanding of the issues surrounding this decisions, the Council on Foreign Relations hosted specialists to discuss: the successes and the failures of the JCPOA to date;
the Trump Administration’s renegotiation strategy; and
what the future of U.S.-Iran relations may look like in the absence of such an agreement.
You will find this podcast very informative in that it covers issues not generally in the news.

Reforming the African Union for Financial Independence, Sustainability, and Effectiveness - Wilson Center Video
A Discussion with the African Union High Representative for Financing of the Union and Peace Fund
Africa today is one of the fastest growing but most volatile regions in the world. Globally eight of the 16 peacekeeping missions is found in Africa. In the last decades, this youthful and resource-rich part of the world has faced challenges on many fronts including public health, terrorism, and political instability and corruption.
This Wilson Center program looks at the issues from the African perspective. It will be of value particularly to our WAC participants who have traveled extensively in Africa or who have business relations or served there in some capacity.

Herod the Great as a complicated, ruthless ruler who governed by means of tyrannical brutality; as a politically savvy survivor and connoisseur of great taste; as an ingenious architect and monumental builder at places like first-century Jerusalem, Caesarea Maritima, Herodium, Masada, and Machaerus.
Scholars at the conference will look not only the art and architecture of Herod's time but also at the way King Herod survived intense Middle Eastern political turmoil. This era in many ways is as important today as it was during Roman times.
Speakers include Jodi Magness (U. North Carolina), Andrea Berlin (Boston U.), Kenneth Holum (U. Maryland), David Mevorach (Israel Museum), Barbara Burrell (U. Cincinnati), Győző Vörös (Hungarian Academy of Arts), and Dawn Acevedo (La Sierra U.)
