Event description: 

The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs will host a virtual discussion with Visiting Fellow Adm. Jim Stavridis regarding his new book—his tenth, but his first work of fiction.
Stavridis is the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He is currently an Operating Executive at The Carlyle Group.
2034: A Novel of the Next World War, is a geopolitical thriller that imagines a naval clash between the United States and China in the South China Sea, and the path from there to a global confrontation. Featured as a six-part series in Wired Magazine, 2034 is written as a disturbingly plausible work of speculative fiction. The novel takes us inside the minds of American, Chinese, Iranian, Russian, and Indian officials, as a series of miscalculations on all sides leads the world into an intensifying international storm.
How can the United States and China prevent strategic competition from spiraling into conflict? How can works of fiction inspire creative, innovative approaches to Sino-American relations?
The conversation will be moderated by Paul Kennedy, J. Richardson Dilworth Professor of History and Global Affairs.
Jackson Visiting Fellows are distinguished practitioners invited to participate in an immersive multi-day program on the Yale campus, highlighting their extraordinary contributions to global affairs. They enrich the Jackson and broader university community through attending classes, giving public talks, and interacting with students and faculty through a variety of engaging events.

Population Movements Under Lockdown: Refugees and Migrants in Greece and Lebanon

Event description: 

Join us as Epaminondas Farmakis, founder of HumanRights360, and Sally Abi Khalil, Country Director of Oxfam in Lebanon, bring us up to date on the refugee and migrant experience during the Covid19 year in Greece and Lebanon. As the political and social landscape of Greece shifted with a new conservative government, the military response to the expulsion of refugees from Turkey in February 2012, the banning of the neo-Nazi and anti-immigrant party Golden Dawn, and the burning of Moria camp on Lesvos, we revisit the ongoing humanitarian crisis now under the worst medical threat of the century. Lebanon’s proximity to Syria, the apocalyptic explosion at Beirut’s harbor, and the exacerbation of chronic political corruption that has brought the country’s economy to the brink of collapse, call for a reappraisal of and refocusing on this historic demographic shift that has been obscured by the pandemic and the concurrent political turmoil in the United States.
• Epaminondas Farmakis, Founder of HumanRights360
• Sally Abi Khalil, Country Director of Oxfam in Lebanon
Moderated by:
• Kaveh Khoshnood, Yale School of Public Health
• George Syrimis, Hellenic Studies Program, Yale University
