The opening keynote of this conference is a fireside chat with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peaces’ new president, Florentino (Tino) Cuellar. In the exchange, Marwan Muasher and Maha Yahya hope to discuss with Cuellar the key global challenges he sees looming ahead, including growing global inequality and the ways in which the social and economic landscape of the United States is transforming the country’s foreign policy. They will also talk about Cuellar’s vision for the Carnegie Endowment moving into 2022 and beyond, in particular what he hopes will be its major contribution in the coming years.

Join us for the opening session on Wednesday, December 8, from 15:15 - 16:00 EET, to learn more about our new president and the issues he intends to focus on.
