What are the most dangerous conflicts in the world today? Robert Malley, president and CEO of the International Crisis Group (ICG), will discuss the 10 most important international conflicts to watch in 2018 at a Global Café Breakfast on Thursday, February 15. The ICG is an international NGO that researches violent conflicts and advances policies to prevent or resolve conflicts. Malley, President Obama’s principal adviser on ISIS on the National Security Council, will discuss the recent defeat of the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq and the potential for it to regroup elsewhere. He will also talk about President Trump’s efforts to renegotiate the Iran nuclear deal and the US-Saudi strategy to confront Tehran. He will look at the North Korean nuclear crisis and the administration’s “maximum pressure strategy”, as well as continuing political violence in Venezuela and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the drawn-out war and humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

Robert Malley became President and CEO of the International Crisis Group in 2017, after working for the Obama administration on ISIS and as White House Coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf region. He also served as Special Assistant to President Clinton for Arab-Israeli affairs, and was instrumental in organizing the 2000 Camp David Summit. Robert Malley is a graduate of Yale University, Harvard Law School and Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar.
