There have been global structural changes in the fifteen years following 9/11, including new national security threats; Mr. Elliott Abrams (Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations), an experienced foreign policy advisor for two presidential administrations will share his perspective on the current state of U.S. foreign policy and its possible futures.
With the many changes going on in the world – ISIS and terrorism, the rebalance in Asia following the rise of China, TPP/AIIB, refugee and immigration issues, the Brexit referendum, in addition to the myriad of other political, economic, and societal issues – what are the considerations behind US foreign policy and what strategies might be employed moving forward?
We hope you will join us for what will be a stimulating discussion.
