America and Europe in an Era of Great Power Competition

The rise of China and persistence of Russia as a major military power present a significant national security challenge for the United States. Washington’s ability to deal successfully with these large rivals will be determined in part by how well it makes use of its extensive international alliances and in particular its close allies in Europe. Please join us for a discussion of these issues with Dr. A. Wess Mitchell, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. 

This event is part of the Ashe Lecture Series and is free and open to the public. Ashe Lectures are sponsored by former Knoxville mayor and US Ambassador to Poland, Victor Ashe. For the series, ambassadors and mayors are invited to speak on a variety of public matters, including foreign relations, diplomacy, world affairs, and local government. The series also is part of the Center's Leadership & Governance Program.

Guests may park in the Vol Hall Garage on White Avenue at no charge by requesting a parking voucher from Baker Center staff at the event.
