Join Young Professionals in Foreign Policy for a lively discussion and rooftop reception to celebrate the launch of the IISS Strategic Survey 2016!
Rising populism, resistance to globalization and ongoing wars in the Middle East have sent tremors through the international system in 2016. These geopolitical trends have also elevated foreign policy to the front and center of debates surrounding the American presidential election.
On the heels of the third and final presidential debate, we invite you on October 20 to join YPFP and The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in celebrating the Institute’s official U.S. launch of Strategic Survey 2016: The Annual Review of World Affairs. Now in its 50th edition, Strategic Survey provides objective, in-depth analysis of the developing relationships between major powers, charting the significant events and strategic decisions of the year.
This event will be generously hosted by IISS – Americas at their office at 2121 K Street (21st and K). A discussion and Q&A session from 6:30 to 7:30 PM will precede a short rooftop reception from 7:30 to 8:00 PM.
