It is in this spirit that we are proud to host at WorldAffairs 2010 a diverse gathering of civic leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers, business executives, analysts and students to discuss theCHOICES most pressing international issues of our day. We hope that you will be among those enriching the quality of the discussion.
