Event description

Description

Established one hundred years ago by future president Herbert Hoover at his alma mater, Stanford University, the Hoover Institution marks its centennial in 2019. In recognition of this momentous occasion, a lecture series entitled A Century of Ideas for a Free Society was launched in March 2019, to showcase the rigorous scholarship and research central to the institution’s mission and values: individual, economic, and political freedom; private enterprise; and limited, effective representative government. These timeless and fundamental values are derived from one hundred years of scholarship, the lessons of history, and a fundamental understanding of the nature of war, revolution, and peace.

A Century of Ideas for a Free Society will both address a historic perspective and provide a prospective look into important public policies that impact our society.

SEPTEMBER 24

New Regional Orders and New Ways of War: Europe, the Middle East, and Asia

The global order of the past seven decades is being disrupted by regional dynamics. Powers of the past are reasserting themselves—Russia in Europe and the Middle East, Turkey and Iran in the Middle East, and China in Asia and beyond. Technology is changing how nations can prosper, influence, and compel. The panel will discuss what these changes portend for each of these regions and the US role in shaping events in its national interest.

Speakers: Michael McFaul, Abbas Milani, and Gary Roughead

Moderator: Darrell Duffie
