In October 2010, CPOST co-sponsored a conference on Capitol Hill with the New America Foundation to discuss the future of the Global War on Terror. The discussion centered on the following question: What are America’s best policy choices in Afghanistan, the Middle East as a whole, domestically, and for other core national security issues like nuclear proliferation and economic constraints?

This was the first conference on Capitol Hill hosted by an organization based at the University of Chicago, and engaged many of the brightest minds in the country on this critical question. Please see below for video from conference speakers.
