I am moderating the below event at the Chicago Club tomorrow evening. And I need help. Fortunately, who better than the RBC community to suggest burning or important questions? Oh yeah, you are welcome to come, though there is a door fee. The blurb and details are below the fold. The most incisive suggested question wins a prize.
Drug trafficking, Counternarcotics, and Law Enforcement: A report on renewed U.S.-Russia cooperation
R. Gil Kerlikowske, Director, White House Office of National Drug Control Policy
Victor Ivanov, Director, Federal Drug Control Service of the Russian Federation
Moderated by Harold Pollack, Codirector, University of Chicago Crime Lab and Helen Ross Professor of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago
Since 2009, the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission has renewed intergovernmental collaboration, leading to an unprecedented exchange of resources in areas of mutual interest. As part of this effort, Directors Kerlikowske and Ivanov have worked closely to coordinate interagency activities on counternarcotics initiatives, including cooperation on drug law enforcement investigations and promoting the prevention and treatment of drug abuse. What is the impact of this partnership? How does it affect Chicago, the Midwest, and U.S. national interests? Join The Chicago Council for a conversation on the latest bilateral efforts for combatting international criminal organizations, implementing a joint counternarcotics strategy, and disrupting illicit capital flows around the globe.
