The New Congress & US Foreign Policy
Thursdays,  January 9, 16, 23, 30,  at 7 pm
[Directions to the Seminar Room]

With the 108th Congress taking office, what will US foreign policy be like in 2003? What challenges can we expect in the areas of security, trade, environment, and human rights? How will members of Congress balance constituency interests against party and national interests? What alliances might we expect (or forge) across district lines, across the aisle, and with the Executive branch? What will the impact be on our neighbors and the rest of the world? Professor Charles Stewart, an expert on congressional politics, will help lead our discussions with guests who have served in the Congress, the Cabinet, and the White House; experts in national security, trade, environment, and human rights; & grassroots activists who have worked with NGOs and communities around the world.
