Assessing Shifts in the International Order

Join us for the Delta Phi Epsilon Foreign Affairs Council’s first Annual Symposium, a two-day conference exploring emerging issues in international affairs and trade.

This year’s theme, “Assessing Shifts in the International Order,” asks if the international system is facing a change in the balance of power and what this means for U.S. foreign policy. The symposium will answer this question from a variety of perspectives, including security, public health, and business.
