    Syrians in Massachusetts: The First Twenty Years

    6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

    In the 19th century, Massachusetts had the largest Syrian population, bigger even than New York's, where the “Mother Colony” was located. The floodgates to thousands of immigrants opened in 1878, when whole villages in Lebanon and Syria began to be depopulated as a result of mass migration to the United States. Boston was the site of an early and important ‘Syrian colony,’ but Lawrence, Massachusetts, grew into a much larger one, with almost nine hundred Syrians working in the textile mills. Worcester, Fall River and Springfield also had large colonies. This is the story of Arab Americans at its very beginning, and much of it is still relevant to what is happening today.

    The Fletcher Seminar on International Conflict

    5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

    President Trump’s recent decision to decertify Iran’s compliance with a landmark nuclear agreement between Iran and the major world powers may well be a harbinger of the agreement’s collapse and a military confrontation with Iran. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the agreement is officially called, successfully blocked all paths to a nuclear weapon by Iran, under the most intrusive inspection procedures, for the next 10 to 15 years. It represented a signal foreign policy achievement of the Obama Administration and included an unusual multinational commitment of support by the U.S.’s European allies (the U.K, France, and Germany), Russia, China, and the UN Security Council. After a brief overview of Iran’s nuclear program, the highlights of the 2015 JCPOA agreement, and the primary concerns of its critics, the talk will focus on the likely reactions by Iran and other signatories of the nuclear deal to a U.S. withdrawal from it and the potential risks of a military confrontation between the U.S. and Iran with dangerous regional consequences.

    Trump: Trade & Tirade

    3:30 PM – 5:00 PM

    President Trump's strong aversion to trade deals and an overarching protectionist foreign policy outlook has seen the US withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP was largely seen as an Obama administrative initiative to pivot more towards Asia. It was viewed as a US-backed initiative to counter China's growing trade influence in the region. - So, has the US scored an own goal by backing out from a deal that would make 40% of the global trade economy? - What would this mean for U.S businesses looking to expand in the region? - Does this put China in a more robust position? All pertinent questions, the answers will be provided by our esteemed panelists - three of Fletcher's finest professors and our guest panelist from the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS). Panelists: - Joel Trachtman, Professor of International Law, Fletcher School - Patrick Schena, Adjunct Assistant Professor of International Business Relations, Fletcher School - Professor Rockford Weitz, Professor of Practice, Entrepreneur Coach, and Director of the Fletcher Maritime Studies Program - Robert Lawrence, Albert L Williams Professor of International Trade and Investment, Harvard Kennedy School Moderated by: Akshobh Giridharadas, Co-Chair, ASEAN Club.
