Join us for a conversation about the conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East, American politics and foreign policy, and the epic struggle for power and influence now being staged in our region by the world’s two superpowers — the United States and China. The discussion will be chaired by the Director of the Lowy Institute’s International Security Program, Sam Roggeveen, and will include questions from the audience.
