The Chicago Council on Global Affairs turns 100 this year. It was created in 1922 amid isolationist sentiment in the U.S. following WWI. Since then, it has brought an international who's-who of speakers to Chicago — everyone from Gorbachev to Thatcher to Obama — to discuss America's place and role in the world. And given recent events in Ukraine, the council's role would seem as relevant now.
