How should the Trump administration handle North Korea with its nuclear missile program – and what is the right balance between military and diplomatic pressure?  What should the administration’s approach be to China as it expands its influence over the South China Sea?

Admiral James Stavridis, the former Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, will take on these questions and other pressing international issues – like Russia’s military adventurism - over a LAWAC dinner on Thursday, June 22nd. Stavridis, the only admiral to hold the top military post at NATO, will focus particularly on the role that the US Navy plays in maintaining security around the world. Stavridis has a keen sense of how sea power has been critical to world power from the time that the Greeks and Persians engaged with their ships in the Mediterranean up until the present day, when the US dominates the oceans with its ten aircraft carrier battle groups. He will also talk about the delicate situation the country is facing after the recent cyber-attacks from North Korea and Russia, and why he says the best thing to do is retaliate with our own cyber-attacks.

Admiral James Stavridis, USN (Ret.) is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who spent over 35 years on active service in the Navy. He commanded destroyers and a carrier strike group in combat and served for seven years as a four-star admiral, including nearly four years as Supreme Allied Commander for Global Operations at NATO. After retiring from the Navy he was named the dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in 2013. He has written articles on global security issues for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Atlantic.
