We look at the latest news from the region, and examine what this means for the rest of the world.

    Forum Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates Robert Gates's career gives him a unique vantage point. He's the only U.S. defense secretary in history to serve under consecutive presidents from opposing parties.

We'll talk to Gates about the book, as well as the Ukraine crisis and other pressing foreign policy challenges.

    Forum Ask the Mayor: San Francisco's Ed Lee In January, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee unveiled what he called his "affordability agenda," including a proposed hike in the minimum wage and construction of more low-cost housing. But he also urged San Franciscans not to take the city's economic recovery for granted. "There is not a city on the planet that would refuse to trade places with our robust economic condition right now," he said. Still, some critics say the mayor has been too slow to address the city's housing shortage and rapidly rising cost of living, and that he is too cozy with the tech industry. Mayor Lee joins us to discuss the economy, the future of MUNI, the city college accreditation crisis, State Senator Leland Yee's corruption case and other issues.

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) World Affairs 2014: Syria's Refugee Crisis The United Nations high commissioner for refugees estimates the civil war in Syria has displaced up to 10.25 million people, with 3.45 million of those refugees living in nearby countries. Neighboring Lebanon has accepted nearly 1 million Syrian refugees, approximately 22 percent of its population. Jordan's third largest "city" is now the Zaatari refugee camp, which holds over 120,000 people. Other nations in the region are experiencing the wave of immigration, and all are struggling to support the massive influx of refugees with inadequate public services and infrastructure that barely met the needs of existing populations. What short and long term impacts will this refugee crisis have on the region, and what is the likelihood, if any, of these displaced persons returning home? Guests include Jana Mason, senior adviser for external relations and government affairs, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees; Maureen White, visiting scholar, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University; and Mona Yacoubian, senior adviser, Middle East and project director, Pathways to Progress, Stimson Center.
