This seminar-style workshop explores "Freedom from Fear" from when it was declared by FDR in January 1941 in light of the Nazi menace -- and after 1945 when it served as a statement of American principles against the Soviet Union during the Cold War -- through today, as it pertains to some of the larger global challenges like forced migration and refugee crises. Audience participation and discussion will be encouraged.
