In particular in tumultuous and transitional times which have led to much unpredictability and instability, it is essential to obtain a better grasp of the driving forces, the fears and ideas as well as the personalities that shape our age.
The Krasno Global Affais & Business Council and the Krasno Events Series seek to contribute to achieving this and provide students and the general public with deeper insights into 20th and 21st century global political, social, security and economic affairs.

2. "Ambassadors Forum & Distinguished Statespersons Forum" lectures and discussions with distinguished diplomats, military and politicians
3. NEW "China-US-Europe Forum" talks and discussions regarding the rise of China and its implications with experts in the field
Students, faculty, administrators and, of course, members of the general public are more than welcome to attend and participate in our events. The events are free of charge & no ticket is required. ALL WELCOME
