The Graduate School of International Policy Studies and Management (GSIPM) will present its fourth annual Global Problems and Solutions Colloquium this spring, featuring several notable speakers on the topic of “Evolving Global Security Challenges: From Traditional to Nontraditional Security.” Many of the guest lectures offered will be open to the public free of charge, and take place on the Institute’s downtown Monterey campus.
The colloquium will feature frank discussions with leading international experts, top academics, and senior U.S. officials on some of the most pressing security challenges of the current age, such as:
· What are the most crucial issues on the nonproliferation agenda over the course of the next five years?
· Has the U.S. government finally figured out how to “do” nation-building?
· What is the connection between global warming and conflict?
· Does promoting democracy abroad really work?
The colloquium will provide a unique opportunity for participants to interact with the global community of leaders and to understand how key international policy issues are related and interconnected.
All of the listed events will take place on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. in the Irvine Auditorium at 499 Pierce Street in Monterey.
