Field Programs


In FY20, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

 

Program Description


China poses the core challenge to America. The stunning rise of the Chinese state, not only as a global economic power but also as a major geopolitical force, has altered the calculations of every society on the perimeter of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. China as a worldwide power tests the wisdom and skill, as well as the tenacity and agility, of the United States. Yet China faces its own existential challenges which are little understood in the West.

Drawing upon the knowledge and experience of a diverse group of prominent experts on China as well as East and South Asia, this seminar will address the historic challenges to U.S. national security interests presented by the rise of China and the changes sweeping through the Indo-Pacific.

This one-day seminar will be sponsored in-house at various Department of Defense installations. This special foreign policy program will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss these and other critical issues with a group of nationally recognized speakers in an informal and off-the-record setting.

Areas to be covered are reflected in the topics below and may be changed to address current issues at the time of the seminar.

I benefited from the left-leaning, democratic perspectives that juxtaposed the conservative perspectives. Keep it balanced—it was awesome!

Very good insights. I appreciate the world-class experts you assemble.

The experience and breadth of knowledge of all the speakers was spectacular. Their chosen topics for discussion were absolutely relevant to this audience and we were provided several themes that help to guide our planning assumptions.
