Event Details

As the November presidential elections draw closer, Folio initiates a series of six critical discussions on the potential outcomes of the election at the national and state level; led by noted national commentator and Folio Board Secretary Mort Kondracke. 

In the second event of the series, Resat Kasaba and Dan Chirot of the Jackson School of International  Studies and former AP and Los Angeles Times foreign correspondent Carol J. Williams, explore foreign policy as a campaign issue and the main challenges the next president will face.  

Resat Kasaba is the Jackson School Director and Stanley D. Golub Chair in International Studies an expert in the history and politics of the Middle East. Recently, he has been researching the role of education in the formation of modern Turkish identity in the twentieth century.

Carol J. Williams has reported from more than 80 countries for the Associated Press (1980-1990) and the Los Angeles Times (1990-2015). She served two postings in Moscow before and after the Soviet Union’s breakup and covered armed conflicts in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Iraq and Ukraine.

Daniel Chirot, Herbert J. Ellison Professor of Russian and Eurasian Studies at the University of Washington’s Henry M. Jackson School, has authored books about social change, ethnic and nationalist conflicts, Eastern Europe, and tyranny. His next book, to be published by Princeton later in 2019, will be called So You Want a Revolution? From Idealistic Radicalism to Tragedy.
