I had the privilege to speak at a recent TRENDS Symposium, alongside leading figures from the military, academic and policy world, and government. The gathering was superbly attended by leading figures from around the world, with a special emphasis on the Gulf region. The conversations were mature, clear-eyed, and highly productive as we assessed the threats generated by violent extremism and discussed potential solutions over the course of the very professionally conducted event. I look forward to future TRENDS events dealing with key global issues, and highly endorse their approach.

– Admiral James Stavridis, 16th Supreme Allied Commander at NATO 2009-2013 and current Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University
