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.
“Renewing American global leadership and deepening the partnership with friends and allies will not be easy, and they will not wait indefinitely for the United States to return to its cooperative ways.” Ivo H. Daalder and James M. Lindsay, The Empty Throne
