Democracy versus Autocracy: The Return of Great Power Rivalry


The National Security Strategy of the United States declares the return of great power rivalry with Russia and China to be the foremost threat to US security and economic well-being, the Atlantic Council observes. Further, many analysts predict that America’s autocratic rivals will have at least some success in disrupting and, in the longer term, possibly even displacing US global leadership.

Please join a virtual panel discussion about the return of great power rivalry on Tuesday, March 31, from 9:30 – 10:30 AM. The conversation will feature the Atlantic Council’s Matthew Kroenig, State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus, and PBS NewsHour correspondent Nick Schifrin. The event will serve as an opportunity to launch Dr. Kroenig’s new bookThe Return of Great Power Rivalry: Democracy versus Autocracy from the Ancient World to the US and China, which argues America is better positioned to maintain a global leadership role than its rivals.

The event will be entirely virtual, and further information about how to access the event via Zoom video-conference will be sent out in the days prior to the event. Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase signed books with free shipping via Politics & Prose Bookstore.  RSVP.
