Barack Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States on Tuesday. He accepted the will of the voters in Chicago's Grant Park Tuesday night, while those watching wept, cheered and committed the scene to memory.
However, the focus shifted quickly to the daunting challenges facing the president-elect, with his supporters offering sober reflections of what lies ahead. No president since Obama was born has ascended to the Oval Office confronted by the accumulation of major challenges awaiting him.
Aside from issues related to the domestic economy, Obama will also inherit several foreign policy challenges, including, among others: 
  • A war in Afghanistan that seems to get more deadly by the day
  • A potential pact with Iraq for the withdrawal of American troops by 2011
  • The increasingly dangerous effects of global climate change  
  • A financial crisis threatening global markets

A panel of SDSU experts will discuss these issues and other challenges facing Obama in a free public forum, starting at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at Casa Real in Aztec Center.

The forum previews a spring-semester lecture series organized by Dipak Gupta, Fred J. Hansen professor of peace studies, that will explore, in greater depth, the foreign policy challenges facing the United States.
