About the Program

With 200 million people and the 9th largest economy in the world, Brazil is of huge importance to the U.S.  We are by far the largest investor in Brazil and their second-largest trade partner — after China —  with shared economic and national security interests across Latin America.  

 

U.S. Ambassador to Brazil Todd Chapman and Brazilian Ambassador to the U.S. Nestor Forster will discuss the prospects for increased bilateral trade, investment opportunities, cooperation in dealing with regional crises, and the ties between Brazil and Georgia.

 

And of course, the environment, where the Biden Administration is actively engaging Brazil to support the country's new goals to protect the Amazon rain forest, including at the recent U.S.-hosted Leaders Summit on Climate. 

 

The two ambassadors will also brief on U.S. support for Brazil, as the country deals with the devastating impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, which has caused a total of almost 400,000 deaths.

Public Session is Open & Complimentary to All.

Social Justice + Law Enforcement Policy

By now, we have all seen the police bodycam and cell phone videos revealing the deaths and injuries incurred all too frequently by black and brown citizens during police encounters.  

 

We have agonized over those encounters with our families, friends, colleagues, and in corporate board rooms. As a community, it is now time to determine how to solve this problem.

 

On May 25, World Affairs Council Board Chair and former Detroit police officer Bernard Taylor sits down with law enforcement experts Paul Butler (Georgetown Law School Professor, Author, and frequent MSNBC contributor), Lynda Williams (President, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and frequent national commentator) and Dave Wilkinson (President and CEO, Atlanta Police Foundation, and advisor to the Atlanta Police Department) for a focused discussion of potential solutions to this longstanding community problem.   

Open & Complimentary To All.

Global Security & International Relations Series

Since we spoke in August with Emily Haber, the Ambassador of Germany to the US, the United States has inaugurated a new President, the United Kingdom has left the European Union and Covid vaccinations in Europe have gone far more slowly than anticipated.  Chancellor Angela Merkel will depart office when her successor is elected in September — after 15 years as chancellor. 

Join us for a belated celebration of Europe Day as we talk about US-German relations, US-European Union relations, and her take on the world’s hot spots — China, Russia, and the Iranian nuclear deal.

Open & Complimentary To All.
