Please join us for a fireside chat with Daleep Singh, Deputy National Security Advisor for international economics and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council. In this capacity, Mr. Singh coordinates the Administration’s policymaking process for a range of issues at the intersection of economic policy and national security, including global growth, supply chain resilience, innovation policy, economic statecraft, digitization, financial stability, anti-corruption and climate finance. As the U.S. Sherpa to the G7 and G20, he also acts as President Biden’s representative in major international fora.

As one of the architects of the sanctions the United States implemented on Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, Mr. Singh will discuss what kind of collective actions, including sanctions, have been most effective and what more needs to be done. Further, he will elucidate on the role that the G7 and other multilateral groups can play in addressing this ongoing conflict, and more broadly, how universities can engage with the G7, G20 and other multilateral groups to address global challenges.

In conversation with Annelise Riles, Executive Director, Northwestern Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs and Associate Provost for Global Affairs, Northwestern University.
