Global Conversations: Prospects for Afghanistan and Pakistan.   
Courtroom 317; 12 pm; Free

Part of a monthly series that covers significant issues important to the United States.  Prospects for Afghanistan and Pakistan.   Join us for a conversation with Dr. Manju Parik on whether the Trump administration will maintain the status quo, completely reverse the Obama administration drawdown, or withdraw completely, and whether the U.S. faces a no win situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Major internal conflict has plagued Afghanistan for four decades. The U.S., for its part, has conducted military operations in the country nearly continuously since 9/11. Today, war with the Taliban persists, and tensions between the U.S. and Pakistan have gradually deteriorated.  The program is jointly sponsored by Landmark Center and Global Minnesota.
