Lori Esposito Murray, PhD
Adjunct Senior Fellow
Council on Foreign Relations
In June 2017, Secretary of Defense Mattis in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee, identified five top threats to peace and security and the international order: a North Korea aggressively improving its nuclear and missile capabilities, a resurgent and more aggressive Russia, a rising, more confident and assertive China, the rise of terrorist groups and a revolutionary Iranian regime. The growing chorus of policymakers, military and intelligence officials, and analysts calling for a cohesive response has elevated public awareness of these critical issues.
The Columbus Council on World Affairs invites you to join a dialogue about the most pressing threats to U.S. national security, as well as possible scenarios for a changed world order. What do we know about North Korea’s nuclear capabilities and intentions? Are we on the brink of war on the Korean peninsula? What are the key factors influencing the United States’ relationship with Russia and China right now? Will the nuclear agreement with Iran hold? What are the implications for the region and for the global community?
To help us put these critical topics into context, we welcome our distinguished guest, Lori Esposito Murray, Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
