    Join the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire for the first installment in our Spring 2022 Global Tipping Points speaker series, The Future of Global Supply Chains. On coming into office, the Biden Administration announced its policy to strengthen the resilience of global supply chains in order to ensure economic prosperity and national security. Biological threats, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, cyber-attacks, climate shocks and geopolitical competition have all exposed vulnerabilities in these supply chains.

    On February 1, 2022, Bob Trebilcock, Editor of Supply Chain Management Review, will provide an overview of global supply chains, how they work, what is broken, and ideas for fixing them in the future. He will identify which elements of the current supply chain crisis are transitory and which are more persistent. Following Trebilcock’s opening remarks, a moderated Question and Answer session will be held.

    We hope you can join us for this exciting online event! Please note that this was originally scheduled as a hybrid event, but the in person portion of the event has been cancelled.

    Since mid-October 2021, social media and news outlets have reported significant movement by Russian military forces on or near the Ukrainian border. These movements come amid increasingly aggressive rhetoric by Russian policymakers about encroachment by  NATO near Russia’s borders and the geopolitical status of Ukraine. Many observers have expressed concerns that such buildups and exercises could be the prelude to a second Russian invasion of Ukraine or other aggressive actions.


    Anna Borshchevskaya of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy joins the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire to discuss developments in Ukraine from the context of Vladimir Putin’s global foreign policy strategy. She will also discuss Russia’s game-changing intervention in Syria in the context of Putin’s global foreign policy strategy. 

    We hope you can join us for this exciting online event!

    Competition format this year:

    In Rounds 1-10, each team submits their answer using an electronic clicker system, concealing their answers to all except the computer.  In the Final Round, the top two teams will go head-to-head to compete for 1st and 2nd place. These two teams will be invited up on stage and the 1st placed team will go first.  They will be asked an open-ended question and have 30 seconds to answer.  A correct answer wins them a point.  An incorrect answer sends the question to the 2nd place team, who will have 15 seconds to answer, for a chance to "steal" the point.  Then the 2nd place team will get the next question.  The round will continue like this until one team gets to 5 points.
