Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine is likely to be a central topic of discussion, Cornell Clayton, director of the Foley Institute, said.

“We’ll likely be talking a lot about Ukraine, NATO and its role going forward, China and the situation with Taiwan, as well as the continuing controversies in the Middle East such as what is happening in Afghanistan and nuclear arms agreement with Iran,” Clayton said. “Aside from these international issues, I am sure there will be some discussion about the Jan. 6 insurrection and challenges to democracy at home. There will also be time for questions from the audience.”
