The global Chess board:
old players, new agendas
The Cold War may be over, but the diplomatic landscape remains as treacherous as ever. The recent slew of international crises serves to highlight America’s changing role in the world. From Syria to Iran, Crimea to the South China Sea, the geopolitical landscape is full of contention. This year, the Student Conference On National Affairs will host its 61st conference, entitled “The Global Chessboard: Old Players, New Agendas” which will attempt to address challenges facing America today, such as such as energy security, terrorism, trade policy, alliances, and the rising importance of regional players in international affairs.
