Read a summary of this discussion here.

A discussion with Dr. Robert Malley, president and CEO of the International Crisis Group, on pressing conflicts and crises to watch in 2018.

From nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula to the dissolution of the Iran nuclear deal for political reasons, there are several major hotspots around the world where conflict has the potential to break out. Malley wrote about 10 such conflicts to watch in 2018 and will discuss them with Pacific Council members.

What are the major hotspots around the world? What can be done to resolve or relieve these tensions before conflict breaks out?
