From North Korea to Yemen, unpredictability has become a defining trend in the new international landscape. Preventing violence escalating requires seeing through a fog of commentary. More than ever there is a striking need for clear, balanced and informed analysis.
Through its unique expertise based on field experience and research, the International Crisis Group seeks to identify the next volatile flashpoints and propose concrete steps to mitigate them.
We need to ask ourselves how to navigate the current crises and to what extent they reveal deeper shifts at play in the international system.
The French Embassy is pleased to invite you to our next French Series panel discussion which will be moderated by Susan Glasser, Chief International Affairs Columnist for POLITICO, in the presence of Gérard Araud, Ambassador of France to the U.S. and Robert Malley, President and CEO of the International Crisis Group
