We're taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming to bring you live coverage of two major events FP is hosting in Washington today.
Starting in a few minutes at the Newsweum, the FP Group is cohosting a day-long strategic forum with the State Department's Policy Planning Staff, titled, "Transformational Trends 2013 and Beyond."
Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns will deliver opening remarks. Director of Policy Planning Jake Sullivan, and his predecessors David Gordon, Morton Halperin, Dennis Ross, and Jim Steinberg will discuss transformational trends and the biggest challenges facing U.S. foreign policy from a historical perspective.
U.S. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon will deliver the lunchtime keynote address, entitled "U.S. National Security Priorities in a Transforming World." Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski, two of FP's 2012 Global Thinkers, will also be in attendance.[view whole blog post ]
