Foreign Affairs Discussion Group
Date: February 3, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Witherle Library’s Foreign Affairs discussion group will resume via Zoom with Barbara Griffiths again moderating. To register please email Anne Romans or call 326-4375. A Zoom link will be sent the day of the discussion.
The theme will be based on an Economist article entitled, “The Trump Audit” on page 22 of the October 31, 2020 issue and will then pivot to the Biden-Harris administration’s foreign policy agenda.
Secretary of State designate Anthony Blinken testified for over 4 hours before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on January 19 and laid out some of the new administration’s thinking. It’s available on C-Span, but is a long watch or read. For the short version, there’s an NPR article online by Michele Kelemen on January 19 at 11:26am (updated at 4:39pm) that summarized Blinken’s testimony and the long q&a session that followed.
