US Foreign Policy
President Trump's administration is off to a rocky start. He has upended several longstanding relationships and commitments to international agreements while indulging in hectoring comments from his social media account. Internal White House bickering has resulted in personnel turnover and policy confusion. This Fall's foreign policy series will continue to provide policy and historical views in order to understand where the US is going and what we might expect. We look forward to several interesting meetings: Professor Andrew Preston's examination of the basis for the concept of national security; Ambassador Douglas Lute's discussion of his recent experience representing the US at NATO; Dr. Rosa Brooks' look at war and the role of the military in foreign policy; and finally Dr. Francis Fukuyama's study of state-building and development as factors in US foreign policy.
