This fall marks the second year of a truly impactful Asia Society event — the Asia Game Changer Awards and Gala Dinner at the United Nations.

Asia Society will honor the dreamers and leaders of our world making a positive impact on the future of Asia.

The Asia Game Changer Awards are designed to fill a vital gap, identifying and honoring true leaders making a positive contribution to the future of Asia.

These inspiring men and women represent the spectrum of achievement – those who have led from positions of power, as well as those who have done so from ground - level laboratories of innovation.

This year Manny Pacquiao — philanthropist, world famous professional boxer, and member of the Philippines House of Representatives — has been selected as our 2015 Asia Game Changer of the Year!

When the Troops Go Home: General John Alle &Future
As U.S. commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan from 2011-2013, General John Allen presided over the early stages of the drawdown of American forces. He has since been quoted as supporting the recently concluded bilateral security agreement, saying it “will help Afghanistan stay on a path toward relative economic and political stability.” The proposed deal calls for 10,000 troops to remain in Afghanistan, to train local forces and to conduct counterterrorism activities.

Major questions remain as to the future of Afghanistan and its security in particular. Will the remaining contingent be enough to preserve the gains for which so many have suffered and died? Tribal politics still fracture Afghan society, and the country is at risk of devolving into an ungovernable collection of regional affinities and unending violence. Fears have also been stoked about a possible return of Al Qaeda: in Iraq, the terrorist group has recently captured Fallujah and government forces are struggling to regain control. Will Afghanistan face similar crises?

Join Asia Society as we welcome General Allen in conversation with Martha Raddatz of ABC News, who has made more than 20 trips to Afghanistan.
