  3. 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.

  4. Perspectives on the U.S. Intervention in Iraq 2003-2011

    5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

    This conversation is one of a four-part series this semester at the Fares Center, highlighting community members' experiences and work in the region. Frank Sobchak and Karim Elkady will delve into current public debates about U.S. involvement in Iraq. Mr. Sobchak will argue that strategic defeat was not pre-disposed, but rather a byproduct of a series of decisions throughout the conflict whose combined effects ultimately doomed American efforts. Mr. Elkady will argue that an opportunity existed for the U.S. to succeed in Iraq, but that flawed working assumptions, misguided decisions, and unwillingness to carry out major state-building tasks led to mission failure. Please note that this event will be off the record.
