REVISITING RUSSIA - Mark Galeotti: Where Is Putin Leading Russia?
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

REVISITING RUSSIA - Mark Galeotti: Where Is Putin Leading Russia?

From the “Evil Empire,” through “Upper Volta with Rockets” and then to the “Wild East,” outsiders have time and again tried to come to terms with Russia, its domestic trajectory, and its place in the world. Suddenly, Moscow’s relations with the West are souring and there is talk of a new Cold War, of a geopolitical Great Game. Join CGA Clinical Professor of Global Affairs and leading expert on Russian security affairs Mark Galeotti for a series of three conversations, featuring experts with distinctive perspectives on Russia who will dis­cuss the current state of the country, its future, and the role it is likely to play in the world.

Special series co-sponsored by the NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia

Mark Galeotti: Where Is Putin Leading Russia?

Monday, September 29, 6.30-7.45 PM

Professor Mark Galeotti spent spring and summer 2014 in Moscow as a visiting scholar, where he spoke with Russian officials and foreign diplomats, scholars and office workers, cops and expats. He joins Jordan Center Director Yanni Kotsonis in conversation on how Russia is run today, what the priorities of Putin’s regime appear to be, and likely prospects both for the country and its leader.

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.

SPECIAL EVENT - War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity in Syria: Accountability and Avenues of Justi
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Downtown

SPECIAL EVENT - War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity in Syria: Accountability and Avenues of Justice

Thursday, October 2, 6.30 – 7.45pm

The war in Syria has seen over 150,000 fatalities, including the killing of approximately 1400 people through the use of chemical weapons.  In addition, legal and forensic experts have located compelling evidence of systematic torture and execution of detainees by the Syrian government.  Both government forces and non-state armed groups appear implicated in crimes against humanity as well as war crimes.  This panel examines possible avenues of justice for the crimes committed in Syria.  While Russia and China have blocked referral of the situation to the International Criminal Court, this Panel explores alternative routes to trying to ensure justice, such as the establishment of a hybrid or regional tribunal.  

Moderator:

Jennifer Trahan, Associate Clinical Professor, CGA

Panelists:

Ambassador Stephen J. Rapp, Office of Global Criminal Justice, U.S. State Department
Béatrix Le Frape du Hellen, Legal Counsellor, Mission of France to the United Nations
David M. Crane, Professor of Practice, Syracuse University School of Law; founding Chief Prosecutor, Special Court for Sierra Leone
Richard Dicker, Director, International Justice Program, Human Rights Watch

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.

Conflict, Security, and Development - Drug Policy Reform: How Did We Get Here and What is Next?
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Washington Square

CONFLICT, SECURITY, AND DEVELOPMENT: ISSUES, ACTORS, AND APPROACHES

Drug Policy Reform: How Did We Get Here and What is Next? 

This brown bag lunch series examines new research, creative policy approaches, and recent innovations in addressing security and development challenges in conflict and post-conflict contexts.

Tuesday, October 7, 12.30 – 1.30 pm

Aram Barra, Co-founder and Programme Director, Espola; Program Officer of the Joint Drug Policy Reform Project of Mexico United Against Crime and Transform Drug Policy Foundation

The ‘war on drugs’, in most places, is metaphorical. It is rarely used by governments and was recently abandoned as a rhetorical device by the United States. As more public figures call for drug policy reform, two inevitable questions come to mind (a) how did we get to where we are today? and as reform comes about (b) what are the policy trends that different countries are following around the world? This talk will address most common misconceptions and concerns around drug policy reform and cannabis legal regulation. It will also present with key questions as reform moves forward around the world. 


 

FUELING OUR FUTURE - Pipelines and Political Pressure: the Geopolitics of Russian Oil and Gas
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Downtown

FUELING OUR FUTURE - Pipelines and Political Pressure: the Geopolitics of Russian Oil and Gas

With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics?

Join CGA faculty and experts in the field to discuss the changing landscape of global energy: its potential, challenges, and its impact on how we live today.

 

Pipelines and Political Pressure: the Geopolitics of Russian Oil and Gas

Tuesday, October 7, 6.30-7.45 pm

In May 2014 Russia and China signed one of the largest gas deals worth more than $40 billion.  In June, the West imposed a series of sanctions against Russia posing challenges to Europe which relies on Russia for over 30% of its natural gas demand.  Russia and Europe are once again entangled in power politics, and Western sanctions pose problems for Russia's oil and gas sectors.  How will tensions shape the relationship between the dominant energy supplier and its greatest energy trading partners? How might this change Russia and Europe's energy outlook? What effect may this have on the global energy sector. 

Join Professor Carolyn Kissane and other experts for a discussion on how Russia wields its energy reserves as a tool of diplomacy (and sometimes force) in Europe and elsewhere.

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.

NEWSMAKERS - The Fence: Documenting Immigration, Civil Liberty, and National Security at the U.S.-Me
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

NEWSMAKERS - The Fence: Documenting Immigration, Civil Liberty, and National Security at the U.S.-Mexico Border

Today, journalists covering global issues straddle a fine line. Are they simply reporting news as it happens or does their work actually affect the stories they cover? How has this dynamic changed as more journalists turn to non-traditional and new media to both source and to spread their stories? Join Alexis Gelber, a long-time, top editor at Newsweek, in conversation with today’s new global journalists who use print, social, and alternative media inventively to change how global stories are covered, and to sometimes affect their outcomes.

The Fence: Documenting Immigration, Civil Liberty, and National Security at the U.S.-Mexico Border

Wednesday, October 15, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

Richard Wolffe, Vice President and Executive Editor, MSNBC.com

Charles Ommanney, Photojournalist

Last year, photographer Charles Ommanney drove 3,000 miles from Brownsville, Texas to Friendship Park, California to document the U.S.-Mexico border for a three-part documentary for MSNBC. He interviewed farmers, environmentalists, activists, law enforcement officers, and others, gaining diverse perspectives on life along the southern border. Join Ommanney and Richard Wolffe for a conversation on the creation of the documentary, the challenges of reporting on the current debate about immigration, and what his experience reveals about the intersection between immigration, civil liberties, and security at the border. How does his experience illuminate the current debates over the refugee status of the thousands of people, many children, who cross the border into the United States? 

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.
