Part 3 of 4 - "Naval Diplomacy in the Age of Competition: What role does the US Navy play in Great Powers Competition?“ with speaker LCDR Rory Upright, USN

       After 20 years of protracted operations supporting the Global War on Terror, the US Navy has finally reoriented the Fleet to peer competition. Today, rising competitors seek to upend the rules-based order. As such, diplomacy, in all its forms, has taken a prominent role. Buzzwords like deterrence, presence, and agility have come to dominate modern parlance, but what do they mean? What is naval diplomacy? Why is this understudied topic so important, and what can the Navy do to ensure that the rules-based order is safeguarded from aggression?

       LCDR Upright is a PhD student, TOPGUN graduate, and combat-seasoned Naval Flight Officer with more than 11 years of aviation experience.

       Free for veterans, and active duty military, $15/ Adult ticket, $10 senior for civilians. Proceeds benefit 6th Street Studios and Art Center. Get your tickets at Eventbright or at the door.
