How the Murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand Still Menaces the Peace
A discussion with:
Dr. Harlan Ullman
Senior Adviser, Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security
Introduced and moderated by:
Mr. Frederick Kempe
President and CEO
An expert on global security and nontraditional threats, Dr. Ullman advances innovative recommendations for addressing the dangers facing the United States today. With the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the outbreak of Ebola, and failed governments giving rise to crises ranging from Eurasia to the Middle East and beyond, he argues it is critical for global leaders to respond strategically. As part of the Atlantic Council’s effort to inject strategic thinking into the dialogue about the challenges the United States and its allies face, Dr. Ullman will outline what the United States should do to address these threats and to remain a global leader. Drawing lessons from a century of history, he will recommend a new strategic approach to failing governments, economic despair, disparity, and dislocation, ideological extremism, and environmental calamities.
Dr. Ullman is a senior adviser at the Atlantic Council and a member of its Strategic Advisors Group. He is also a senior advisor at Business Executives for National Security, chairman of the Killowen Group, and director of the Capital Guardian Mutual Fund. Dr. Ullman sits on the advisory board of Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Commander European Command, and IE/SPS.
Dr. Ullman’s book, A Handful of Bullets: How the Murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand Still Menaces the Peace, will be available for purchase.
