The United States is undergoing a major transformation in national security and foreign policy in response to developments at home and abroad. The current domestic political environment is driving a reassessment and realignment of America’s role in the world.
The post-WWII institutions the United States built to ensure relative peace in the world, Pax Americana, and the multilateral, rules-based order that benefited America’s economic and political aims are under fire. Meanwhile rising powers, regional crises, perennial wars and existential challenges – nuclear proliferation and climate – confront our foreign policymaking establishment.
Our conversations will put national security and foreign policy issues in context while seeking to understand the path ahead for America in the world, especially as citizens grapple with Election 2020 decisions.
