Conflict in the South China Seas - Thursday at Shoreline Community College

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

The Global Affairs Center has two events Thursday. A speaker in the morning and Great Discussions continues in the evening.

In the morning...

Finding Your “True North” - My Education Journey
Loretta Fisher (Shoreline, ’07)
Graduate Student, UW, Environmental Science and Resource Management
Thursday, April 27, 2017, 11:30-12:20
Room 1503

Loretta’s educational journey took her from economics to Asian languages, from criminal justice reform to ecological restoration. She shares her personal experience from growing up in rural Colorado trailer parks to doing serious scientific research as a graduate student, and along the way discovering an avocation that, in her own words ”has enabled me to adapt my educational track over time to find my own unique path.”

That same evening the conversation continues . . .

“Conflict in the South China Sea”
Thursday, April 27, 2017, 6:30- 8:30pm
Guest Moderator:  Bill Center, Vice Admiral (retired) U.S. Navy

The South China Sea is a locus of competing territorial claims, and China its most vocal claimant. Despite rising international pressure, including an unfavorable ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, China staunchly defends its policies in the region. Preventing tensions from boiling over is a matter of careful diplomacy.
