The World Affairs Council of Orange County along with the World Affairs Council of Inland Southern California, San Diego World Affairs Council, the Santa Barbara Committee on Foreign Relations, and WACA will co-present a livestream webinar with Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, on Monday, July 13, at 4:15 PM ET (1:15 PM PT).

Dr. Haass is one of the most articulate, thoughtful analysts in the United States regarding global affairs and U.S. foreign policy. He will discuss how we can become more informed, discerning citizens by understanding how the world works, how international acts impact us domestically, and how we can help shape U.S. responses. Haass will also explain how he studies world events, global politics, financial shifts, cultural uprisings, and ancient and modern history to make sound, independent judgments regarding events around the globe. Finally, Dr. Haass will engage with the audience in a frank, lively Q&A regarding international challenges.
