"The world places many demands on United States leadership:  From fighting terrorism and negotiating peace in the Middle East, to defending human rights, intellectual property and freedom of navigation, preventing nuclear proliferation, and maintaining economic stability worldwide. Some nations crave the U.S. role; others resent it. Global Agenda 2013 explores a variety of ways U.S. influence is felt and expected around the world."

All events are live simulcasts.  As always questions will be taken from the SL audience.
