The World Affairs Council of The Monterey Bay has developed an online video series by leading International Affairs Experts in our area, including faculty at the Naval Post-Graduate School (NPS), The Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS) and the Naval War College based at NPS. These outstanding videos are presented on 15th and the 30th of each month.
On November 15th, 2020, WACMB’s Quick-Take Video Series will feature Dr. Michael Auslin, Distinguished Research Fellow in Contemporary Asia at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University and his presentation “Asia’s New Geopolitics.” This exceptional addition to the series focuses on The Indo-Pacific region of the World.
“The Indo-Pacific is fast becoming the world’s dominant region. Now, as it grows in power and wealth, long-simmering geopolitical competition has re-emerged. Professor Auslin presents two key issues transforming the region: China’s ambitious foreign and economic policies and North Korea’s quest for nuclear weapons.”
You can join this very informative video on November 15th at the following link: www.wacmb.org.
