Please join us on Wednesday, March 23 at 11:00am EDT for our next InSTEP session, “The Journalists’ View: What to Watch on the Global Landscape in 2022.” We will be joined by -
- David Ignatius, prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post and author of several New York Times best sellers

The devastating military and humanitarian situation in Ukraine grips our attention. The crisis in Europe is unlike any we have seen in the last 80 years and comes just as the world moves – unevenly – into a new phase of managing the pandemic. Geopolitical and global economic ramifications are only just beginning to emerge and will shape our path forward for decades to come. Impacts include energy and commodity price shocks that contribute to inflation; a blow to grain and fertilizer production and trade that risks exacerbating global hunger; new supply chain snarls as metals and minerals trade is interrupted; questions about whether and how China will support Russia and implications for its own domestic and regional ambitions; and how the U.S. might engage with authoritarian regimes from Iran to Venezuela as it seeks to bolster global energy supplies.
For a thoughtful look at these and other topics, please join us for what promises to be an insightful conversation by registering here
no later than Tuesday, March 22. A link will be shared closer to the meeting. For questions, please contact Kate Pratt (firstname.lastname@example.org
Until then, for those who might have missed our conversation with Admiral Stavridis, you can find it here
