New York, NY

Iran is on the verge of a breakout nuclear capability; the Eurozone is in deep distress; Syria is facing a humanitarian crisis; China and North Korea are undergoing a leadership transitions; and turbulence continues in Egypt and throughout North Africa.

As President Obama prepares for his second term, questions about American leadership are at stake. And traditional patterns of interstate diplomacy have been upended, given the enhanced power of popular movements, private sector actors like banks, and terrorist groups to influence the geopolitical agenda.

Two prominent foreign policy experts will join us to discuss how the United States might accomplish its strategic objectives in this environment of diffused power: Ambassador Christopher Hill, America's former Ambassador to Iraq, South Korea, Poland, and Macedonia who also served as the Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, and as the head of the U.S. delegation to the Six-Party Talks on the North Korean nuclear issue; and Dr. Charles Kupchan, Whitney Shepardson Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Professor of International Affairs in the Walsh School of Foreign Service and Government Department at Georgetown University, and former Director for European Affairs at the National Security Council (NSC) during the first Clinton administration. Before joining the NSC, Dr. Kupchan worked in the U.S. Department of State on the policy planning staff.

Panelists:

Christopher Hill, Dean, Josef Korbel School of International Studies; Former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq

Charles Kupchan, Whitney Shepardson Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations

Moderator:

Sujit Choudhry, Cecelia Goetz Professor of Law, New York University School of Law
