Wednesday June 17, 2020 – 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm EDT A SSF webinar series exploring American leadership  

When the world looks at the United States as a beacon for the values of democracy and the rule of law, the country wins friends and admirers. A generation of Cold War teenagers was inspired by Ronald Reagan’s 1987 words in Berlin to stay strong and fight for freedom. But is the world still looking to the United States for leadership thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall?

Watch the Security and Sustainability Forum (SSF) and the George Washington University (GWU) Environmental and Energy Management Institute in a discussion on leadership with Michael Chertoff , former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, and current Chairman of the Board of Freedom House, with host former Hungarian Ambassador to the United States and NATO, András Simonyi.

In the webinar, they discuss global cooperation in a post-COVID-19 world in the fight against pandemics, global warming, the efforts to stop the backsliding of democracies and the challenge of an ever more assertive China.
