    World Affairs Council Inland Southern California invites you to
    experience this recording of a recent Ground Truth Briefing
    sponsored by The Wilson Center

    Russia’s Military Posture in the
    European Arctic

    Available anytime at the following url

    The Arctic has been widely understood by coastal states to be an
    area of “low tension.” However, the Arctic is not insulated from global
    security challenges, especially those around the impacts of climate
    change, and the period of Arctic exceptionalism is coming to an
    end. Mathieu Boulègue, Katarina Kertysova, and Michael Sfraga
    considered Russia’s military posture in the European Arctic
    and seek to explain Moscow’s military build-up in the region,
    Russia’s general force posture, and its impact for NATO
    and its allies.

    World Affairs Councils of America and World Affairs Council
    Inland Southern California

    invite you to participate in a national conference call to discuss

    China's Western Horizon: Beijing and the New
    Geopolitics of Eurasia

    Daniel Markey, Director of the School of Advanced International Studies' Global Policy Program at Johns Hopkins University.

    Daniel Markey

    Register for the call at:

    Under the ambitious leadership of President Xi Jinping, China is zealously transforming its wealth and economic power into potent tools of global political influence. But China's foreign policy initiatives, even the vaunted "Belt and Road," will be shaped and redefined as they confront the ground realities of local and regional politics outside China. In China's Western Horizon, Daniel Markey anticipates that China's deepening involvement will play to the advantage of regional strongmen and exacerbate the political tensions within and among  Eurasian states.
