On March 11, 2008, the Burkle Center for International Relations at UCLA will convene a conference featuring Governor Bill Richardson, Burkle Center Senior Fellows General Wesley Clark (ret.) and Former Foreign Minister to Thailand Kantathi Suphamongkhon and leading scholars, policy-makers, practitioners and military experts who will help us explore and analyze several crucial questions. Is "rogue state" a useful concept, and if so, what defines a rogue state? How has the United States treated such states in the past, and what lessons can be gleaned from these episodes? Under what conditions is engagement, isolation through sanctions and other means, or military action likely to be most effective? Join us to help shape and explore what our nation's foreign policy should be toward current states of concern like North Korea, Iran and Pakistan and for the future.
