programs provides expert insight into contemporary issues that affect
our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. These voyages
are accompanied by men and women—journalists, ambassadors and
generals—who have shaped the modern world through their words and deeds.

attend to the present, engaging with our guest experts on the current
state of international relations and on the prospects for the future.
