2017 – Changing Constants: Diplomatic Challenges for the Trump Administration
Monday, April 3rd 2017
11:30 am to 2 pm
UNO Scott Conference Center
6450 Pine Street, Omaha
The University of Nebraska Omaha presented the 2017 Omaha Ambassadors Forum, supported by Burlington Capital International, The American Academy of Diplomacy, and International Studies & Programs. The focus of the 2017 Omaha Ambassadors Forum this Spring was on the Diplomatic Challenges of the new administration.
The new administration of President Trump is facing a raft of diplomatic challenges around the world. But underlying many of the specifics is a basic dilemma that many of the principles and values that have guided US foreign policy for over 70 years are now challenged. What alliances are worth keeping? How different must our assumptions and policies be from the those that have guided administrations of both parties? The panel discussion on this and other emerging topics took place with distinguished Ambassadors Ronald Neumann, John Beyrle, Avis T. Bohlen, and Thomas Hubbard, ans was moderated by Tom Gouttierre, Dean Emeritus of International Studies & Programs and Director Emeritus of Center for Afghanistan Studies at UNO.
