On Wednesday, March 4, Strife and the United States Foreign Policy Research Group will hold their first conference, entitled ‘A world in flux? Analysis and prospects for the US in global security‘.

The conference will bring together a diverse range of practitioners and academics who will critically analyze the shifting state of security and investigate the diverse ways in which the United States, as the continuing dominant force in global affairs, has responded, and continues to respond, to these challenges. A selection of excellent papers from the conference will be included in a special spring edition of Strife Journal.

The conference will be held in the Pyramid Room (K4U.04) of the King’s Building, King’s College London (WC2R 2LS). The conference begins at 8:30 and finishes at 16:00. Attendance at the conference will be free and open to all.
