The report focuses on global perspectives on the greatest risks facing the world today, from national security concerns to broader global issues such as climate change, and the economy. The day’s discussion will explore the results of Pew’s survey from across the thirty-eight countries polled. Does the existential threat of ISIS affect people outside of the Middle East and Europe? Where are worries of influence of the United States, Russia, or China most acute? Following a short presentation of the report, the panelists will evaluate the circumstances and tenuous relationships that may account for the findings.
