Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

President Obama inherited a global economic slowdown, large and growing deficits, a mushrooming national debt,and a weak dollar. This unprecedented confluence of circumstances continues to significantly alter international relations as economic forces generate instability within countries, trigger multiple forms of protectionism, and constrain U.S. power and influence. Richard Haass looks at how political developments—for example, a crisis involving Iran or Pakistan or Russia—could make difficult situations far worse. He assesses existing policies and international institutions and what the US and others need to do to increase the odds of a sustained global recovery.

Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

The principal characteristic of international relations in the 21st century is turning out to be nonpolarity. This is a world dominated not by one or two or even several states but by dozens of actors possessing and exercising various kinds of power. While the United States remains the single most powerful entity, many other states and non-state actors – ranging from China and India to foundations, media organizations, and terrorist groups – are on the rise. Drawing on his groundbreaking article in Foreign Affairs, “The Age of Nonpolarity,” Haass explains the origins and consequences of a nonpolar world and outlines what the United States must do, both at home and on the international stage, to lead efforts to tackle the global challenges that are this era’s greatest threat to peace and prosperity.

Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

President Trump comes to office facing an ever-growing and daunting slate of foreign policy challenges: a turbulent Middle East, including ongoing conflicts in Syria, Yemen, Libya, and Iraq; a global struggle against terrorism; nuclear weapon development in North Korea; a rising China; an increasingly assertive Russia; challenges to the European project; and the need to address global concerns such as climate change, cybersecurity, and the spread of nuclear weapons. Formerly a senior aide to Secretary of State Colin Powell and before that to President George H. W. Bush, Haass explains the major issues facing U.S. foreign policy and outlines what the new Administration and Congress will need to do both at home and abroad to promote stability in the world.

Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

International business leaders today face more complex risks and opportunities than ever before. They must navigate not only traditional business issues but also political ones, ranging from corporate social responsibility and climate change to political instability and backlashes against globalization. Haass, president of the country’s most influential foreign policy organization and author of numerous books, including an acclaimed book on management, analyzes the environment in which today’s business leaders operate, one that is increasingly transparent, demanding, and crowded with a wide array of players. He draws on his experience at the top levels of government and working with business to offer lessons on how business can both meet challenges and seize opportunities in a global world.

Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. The rules, policies, and institutions that have guided the world since World War II have largely run their course. Respect for sovereignty alone cannot uphold order in an age defined by global challenges from terrorism and the spread of nuclear weapons to climate change and cyberspace. In this thought-provoking presentation rich in history and modeled after his book, A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order, Haass describes the current world, along with how we got here and what needs doing. Haass shows that the world cannot have stability or prosperity without the United States and explains what the United States and the Trump administration need to do at home so that it can continue to act and lead effectively in the world.

Jenna Hager (Exclusively WSB)

United in their humanitarian missions and the spirit of service—as well as through their close family bond—Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager have found a shared purpose in giving voice to the disadvantaged while bringing to light stories of hope. Coming from a unique vantage point as the only twins to grow up in the White House as both grandchildren and children, Barbara and Jenna were inspired to live lives of meaning from an early age. Stemming from their travels to impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America, they have now made it their life’s calling to address the most pressing health, education and economic inequality issues of our time. Whether through Barbara’s creation of Global Health Corps or Jenna’s position as a Today correspondent and UNICEF chair, both women help spread the message that ideas put to action are the best kind. With their special brand of infectious warmth and kind humor—evidenced in their delightful back and forth banter during their presentations—this dynamic pair will ignite an audience’s passion to serve and inspire future young leaders to give back in their schools, local communities or abroad.
