As Americans select their next president, one of the country’s leading national security experts discusses the international threats that will confront the next occupant of the Oval Office. In conversation with Matsui Center Director Ethan Rarick, former Congresswoman Jane Harman will consider issues such as global terrorism, the dangers of failed states, and the changing international status of China and Russia.

Jane Harman is the Director, President and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. During nine terms in Congress, Harman served on all the major security committees—Armed Services, Intelligence, and Homeland Security. She has long been recognized as a national expert at the nexus of security and public policy issues, and has received numerous awards for distinguished service.
