The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, in partnership with the Polish Cultural Council, presents this special event:

The past 18 months have brought to the forefront a number of foreign policy challenges for the Obama administration, including the continued management of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, simmering crises in Iran and North Korea, and intense yet productive nuclear diplomacy with Russia.
