Meeting Schedule:
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2017: We welcome back Dr. Matt Zeirler, Associate Dean, MSU Honors College, to lead a discussion on The Future of Europe, Coping with Crisis. The outcome of the United Kingdom referendum on EU membership sent shockwaves across the globe. What will post-Brexit Europe look like and how can U.S. foreign policy adapt?
 
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2017: Dr. Sam Striker, who has been a NATO and U.S. Military civilian consultant in Afghanistan, will lead our discussion on The Prospects for Afghanistan and Pakistan. Major internal conflict has plagued Afghanistan for four decades. The U.S., for its part, has conducted military operations in the country continuously since 9/11. Will the current administration maintain the status quo; reversing the Obama administration’s drawdown? Or will it withdraw completely? Does the U.S. face a no win situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan?
