Unpacking the Headlines With Gary Grappo

It’s no secret, the world these days is an unsettling place, teeming with vexing change and unprecedented challenges. Join former U.S. Ambassador to the Middle East and popular instructor, Gary Grappo, for a two-hour forum on current issues he identifies as the most pressing at the moment, while learning the facts and gaining insight from his years of firsthand experience in international affairs, diplomacy, and US foreign policy. Ambassador Grappo will dive into the headline stories, explore sometimes hidden implications and assess options. These may include regional topics such as Ukraine, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Iraq, or European unity. They may also address transnational issues, for example, oil and the global economy, food security, refugees and other stories that impact the U.S. Register for one or both sessions which will take place in-person at the University of Denver and will include lecture and discussion with Ambassador Grappo, so you get the chance to engage with him, ask questions, share ideas and even challenge him if you so desire.
