The 20th Anniversary of September 11: Changing the Climate of Conflict
This year marks the twentieth anniversary of September 11—an event that has significantly shaped the world over the past two decades. Students entering college today have never known an America that was not at war.

What conversations have they inherited? How has September 11 shaped their perceptions of religion, global affairs, and democracy? Is it possible to turn the page and change the conversation twenty years hence?

Join the Keough School of Global Affairs for a series of discussions exploring the history leading up to September 11, the present crises that flow from it, and future policy options for promoting peace and human dignity.

Presented by the Keough School of Global Affairs and its Ansari Institute, and co-sponsored by the Keough School’s Kellogg Institute for International Studies, Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights, Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, and Nanovic Institute for European Studies.
