Global Futures: Now
Russia’s war against Ukraine: The Food and Refugee Crisis

Russia’s invasion into the sovereign nation of Ukraine six weeks ago continues to see shifts in the dynamics of the region and the world. More than 10 million Ukrainians remain displaced as refugees of war, but many are beginning to return. But to what? Atrocities and potential war crimes are discovered and shared across the news daily while the world’s food supply enters its own crisis. Join this second conversation in a series to examine how this war impacts our global future.

Social stability is essential to a global future where all of the planet's inhabitants may thrive, but as these events unfold, we see how stability can be so fragile and precarious. Please join us for the second in an ongoing series of special Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory round table conversations where we explore the challenges and dangers the world now confronts in the immediate and long-term future, globally and here at home
