U.S. Foreign Policy Program

A rapidly changing world poses both challenges and opportunities to the United States. The U.S. Foreign Policy program seeks to understand those challenges and opportunities, and assess the forces and dynamics shaping U.S. foreign policy decision-making, and offer specific recommendations for action.
"The threats of growing domestic strife and diminishing trust in national institutions are as great as any traditional national security threat -- with the exception of a nuclear weapons attack -- the United States faces today." Robert Blackwill and Philip Gordon, Containing Russia
