  • Abstract: As Israel's April elections draw near and Palestinians continue looking toward presidential and legislative votes of their own, it is the responsibility of pollsters to identify changes in public attitudes on both sides and in the wider Arab arena. To discuss what recent surveys can tell us about the Israeli-Palestinian political climate, the prospects for renewed momentum toward peace, and related issues, The Washington Institute is pleased to host a Policy Forum with three renowned pollsters, Nader Said, Tamar Hermann, and David Pollock.

  • Abstract: Please join the Atlantic Council’s Asia Security Initiative, housed within the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, for a public panel discussion on forward-looking recommendations for the future of US-China relations and US strategy towards China. How should the United States and its allies work together to respond to China’s ongoing rise? What are the advantages and limits of the current US approach? Ultimately, can the United States and China be both strategic competitors and, at least in some areas, strategic cooperators at the same time? The Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security works to develop sustainable, nonpartisan strategies to address the most important security challenges facing the United States and the world. The Center honors General Brent Scowcroft’s legacy of service and embodies his ethos of nonpartisan commitment to the cause of security, support for US leadership in cooperation with allies and partners, and dedication to the mentorship of the next generation of leaders.

  • Abstract: A twenty-five-year civil war, coupled with rapid oil-fueled growth, shaped Angola into a country ripe with contradictions. It is Sub-Saharan Africa’s third largest economy and the region’s second largest oil producer. However, many Angolans live on less than $2 a day and social indicators, from education to life expectancy, are low. When President João Lourenço was elected in 2017, many people rejoiced his promise of a “new Angola.” Since then, his government has taken swift action to fight “the cancer of corruption,” clean up the business environment, and diversify the economy, reducing the country’s overdependence on oil revenues. But to make meaningful progress, Angola needs to attract greater foreign investment in sectors beyond petroleum. Please join the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center on Monday, August 19, for a timely conversation with H.E. Manuel Domingos Augusto, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Angola, on the US-Angola partnership going forward.

  • Abstract: As world leaders gather in New York, one crisis – Venezuela -- threatens to increasingly spread beyond its borders without renewed international attention. The Western Hemisphere’s largest man-made emergency is the result of years of Nicolás Maduro’s failed economic policies, cronyism, corruption, and systemic human rights violations. Now is the time to refocus and reaffirm the world’s attention to the global implications of Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis.

  • Abstract: For democracies to flourish and succeed, voters need accurate information on which to base their decisions; to weigh up the relative merits of proposed policy A over proposed policy B, to judge whether this candidate is more trustworthy or reliable than that one, or that these promises are more likely to be kept than those. But recent elections, most notably that of Donald Trump as US President, have highlighted the dangers to this process posed by those using social media and the internet to spread malevolent propaganda and fake news.
