On June 12th, U.S. President Donald Trump will presumably meet North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore in what would be a historic occasion. While both expectations and fears regarding the outcome of this diplomatic summit are high, it is hard to argue that international diplomacy isn’t currently experiencing a difficult phase. With the Iran agreement in shambles, U.S. and its major allies increasingly unable to see eye to eye on almost every major geopolitical issue and tensions in Syria and Gaza escalating once more, the current era poses serious challenges for international agreements, partnerships and peaceful solutions.
Immediately in follow-up to the highly anticipated encounter between Trump and Kim, the Center for International Security and Governance at Bonn University will host an evening event with Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook from Harvard Kennedy School and Dr. Enrico Fels, CGS Bonn University, to discuss the outcome of this high-stakes diplomatic summit as well as other trouble spots of international diplomacy, particularly Trump’s revocation of the Iran deal.
