In CFR's first inaugural Master Class Series virtual meeting, James M. Lindsay discusses the role of Congress in shaping U.S. foreign policy, relationships with other countries, and America’s standing in the world.

The CFR Master Class Series is a weekly 45-minute session hosted by Vice President and Deputy Director for Studies Shannon O’Neil in which a CFR fellow takes a step back from the news and discusses the fundamentals essential to understanding a given country, region of the world, or issue pertaining to U.S. foreign policy or international relations.
