The Fate of an Empire: America’s Russia Problem
Loading Map....


Mar , 22, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Pinery at the Hill


Put against the backdrop of America’s Founding Fathers, the world is very different today but the problems in American foreign policy are the same.  Has the position the U.S. has built up in worldwide military deployments throughout Eurasia over the last 25 years threatened or strengthened America’s own national security and freedom? How does a changing Russia affect U.S. foreign policy interests?
