Guided Discussion: Ukraine Crisis: The Fateful Global War? - Boca Raton

Robert G. Rabil

Course Description

Dr. Rabil has been outspoken about seeking a peaceful resolution to the Ukraine crisis. The antagonists (and their supporters) are setting a cycle of escalations in motion, making a bigger catastrophic war an irreversible outcome. In this guided discussion, Dr. Rabil and attendees will probe why the international community has been lackadaisical about seeking peace negotiations and examine what should be done to prevent further tragedies. Space is limited.
