Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall | Livestream with Dr. Richard Haass

June 30

Join us on June 30th at 11am PDT for a free livestream with Dr. Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations. Dr. Haass has studied, worked, and written on U.S. foreign policy and globalization for over four decades. Haass will discuss the importance of global literacy–knowing how the world works–and how the global landscape matters enormously to what happens domestically in countries. U.S. foreign policy is uniquely American, but the world Americans seek to shape is not. Globalization can be both good and bad, but it is not something that individuals or countries can opt out of. Haass will discuss how he studies world events, global politics, financial shifts, cultural uprisings and ancient and modern history, and how that has prepared him to better respond in times of crisis. The conversation will be moderated by Doyle McManus, Washington columnist at the LA Times. 

 

You can purchase Richard Haass's book The World: A Brief Introduction from Chevalier's Bookstore here - https://bookshop.org/books/the-world-a-brief-introduction/9780399562396
