CEPA Forum 2015 and 2016
Opening Keynotes

CEPA President A. Wess Mitchell opens the Forum on the theme of "Saving the West - Priorities and Principles"

The West is facing an unprecedented series of challenges, including Islamist extremism, a revanchist Russia, a militaristic and expansionist China, the rise of challenger economies in the South and at home economic stagnation and political upheavals. What do we need to prioritize? How do we balance a principled stand with pragmatic necessities?
