Two-day Intersession Course on International Relations

The two-day intersession on international relations will be used to assess President Joe Biden’s first year in office as well as to cover those issues that are often pushed off the front pages of the Washington Post and the New York Times, such as the tension brewing in the Balkans, the immigration battle between the European Union and Belarus, and Sino-American competition in Africa. We will also try to get up-to-date on the Sino-Russian-U.S. triangle, the importance of arms control and disarmament, and the efforts of the Intelligence Community to recover from four years of the Trump administration.
