The World Today

Tuesday, 4:30-5:30PM

Location: Global Policy Lab

This is one hour each week dedicated to a conversation about global issues. All Penn students are welcome and encouraged to participate. The World Today will be led by a different individual each week, including PWH faculty, postdocs, visitors, or staff. Some weeks, it might be a general discussion of current events, and other weeks, it might have a specific focus on one pressing global issue. It will offer a consistent time during which members of the Penn community know they can come to PWH for an engaging conversation about current global matters.

Book Launch of "Everyone Loses: The Ukraine Crisis and the Ruinous Contest for Post-Soviet Russia"

March 13, 2017, 3:30-5:00pm

Global Policy Lab @ Perry World House 

Please join Perry World House and the Slavic Department for the launch of Samuel Charap and Timothy Colton's latest book, Everyone Loses: The Ukraine Crisis and the Ruinous Contest for Post-Soviet Russia. Disorder erupted in Ukraine in 2014, involving the overthrow of a sitting government, the Russian annexation of the Crimean peninsula, and a violent insurrection, supported by Moscow, in the east of the country. This crisis has yielded a ruinous outcome, in which all the parties are worse off and international security has deteriorated.
