“Unravelling of International Order: The Coming Crises America Will Face” will be the topic of a lecture at Texas A&M University on the existing world power structure and the stress faced by traditional Cold War alliances.

The program will be held at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center on April 4 beginning at 5 p.m. It is co-sponsored by The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation and the Scowcroft Institute for International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service.

The event will feature remarks from former Amb. John Negroponte, the Brady-Johnson Distinguished Fellow in Grand Strategy and Senior Fellow at the Jackson Institute, and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State; and Dr. Stephen Krasner, Senior Fellow and Professor of International Relations at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University.

There will be a 30-minute presentation by both guests, followed by a question-and-answer session. The discussion will address the specific challenges of the crisis in the European Union, nuclear threats from North Korea, Russian expansionism, and the deteriorating relations with Latin America.

Negroponte was the first Director of National Intelligence and the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq under President George W. Bush, as well as a Deputy Secretary of State.  He also served as ambassador to Honduras, the Philippines, and Mexico.

Krasner was Director of the Policy Planning Staff at the Department of State from Feb. 2005 to April 2007.  In 2002 he served as Director for Governance and Development at the National Security Council.  He is a member of the Board of Directors of the United States Institute of Peace, and was a member of the Foreign Policy Advisory Board of the Department of State from 2012 to 2014.
