  • This program features a talk by NPR Correspondent Deborah Amos on the topic “The Facebook Revolutions: How Arab Activists Used American Technology to Change the Middle East.” She points out that well over half the population of the Middle East is under 30, and their prospects for employment are not bright. Technology may have helped the Arab Spring but it did not cause it.

    What are the prospects for democracy as a result of the Arab spring?
    What role did technology play?
    Are we getting accurate and comprehensive news these days from the rest of the world?

  • PROGRAM NAME: Camden Conference 2012 – Wayne Porter/Mark Mykleby

    This presentation from the 2012 Camden Conference is entitled “Beyond Risk and Threat: The Need for a National Strategic Narrative.” The speakers are Capt. Wayne Porter, (USN) and Col. Mark Mykleby (USMC – Retired). They observe there are fundamental questions that more and more Americans are asking that are looking for a story, not just a list of military strategies. In short, they argue, we need not only a strategic plan but a strategic narrative for today’s world.

    What challenges face the US, and the world, in the coming years?
    What should be the US strategic response to these challenges?
    Is the strategic approach of the post WWII era appropriate for today?
