 Campus and Community Discuss with Dr. Roger Kangas Transatlantic Relations and Central Asia 

Submitted by Eric W. Fraunholz on Wed, 05/07/2014 - 14:37

On Monday evening, 5 May, American Space Leipzig hosted Dr. Roger Kangas, Dean of the Center for Near East South Asia Studies at the National Defense University in Washington, DC. The roundtable concentrated on US/EU Cooperation (and Competition) in Central and South East Asia. Many American Studies students attended as did a number of non American Studies students and members of the public.

The Global War on Terror - and the twilight of the Global War on Terror - have set events in motion that have altered the future of Central Asia, and Afghanistan in particular. Professor Kangas spoke at length about global trends in the region. He also provided insight into the implications of US policy and, in turn, its impact on EU policy. The two are, and operate, very differently. Emerging actors like China and Russia were also discussed and comparisons between global players drawn.
