In these times of global turmoil, join a conversation with four international affairs experts to confront some of the most difficult issues we face today in a special OpenXChange event: "When the World is Aflame" on Tuesday, Mar. 1, at 7 pm in Cemex Auditorium.

From immigration and the refugee crisis to the presidential conversation on foreign policy, Russia, democracy and the Middle East, a building shift to extreme polarization and the demonization of certain groups is being reflected in diminishing compassion for others, setting the stage for increasing unrest and conflict.  

Former Washington Post Jerusalem Bureau Chief and Middle East Correspondent Janine Zacharia will moderate a discussion with three of Stanford’s most seasoned diplomats and scholars to consider the crucial role of the university in a fragmented world and the way forward in fixing a multitude of broken systems. The conversation will explore the following and more:

  • Can democracy be imposed on other nations as a means to peace?
  • How can opponents work together to solve problems, both globally and locally?
  • Is it possible to move beyond “dueling scorecards of victims” to a dialogue of reconciliation in the Middle East?
  • Does Silicon Valley hold the key to addressing both our security and our privacy or will solutions come from Washington? 
  • Where does Stanford and its community fit into the equation?

Professors Condoleezza Rice, Jeremy Weinstein and Mike McFaul in conversation with Janine Zacharia will tackle some of the thorniest issues of the day, then respond to audience questions and comments for what will be a compelling look at the ever-expanding challenges of the 21st century landscape.
