Strategies to Expand U.S. Engagement in a Competitive World Order


Today’s global security environment looks dramatically different than just a few years ago, notes The Center for a New American Security. From the return of geopolitics in the form of a resurgent and revisionist Russia, to the collapse of order across the Middle East and North Africa, to the rise of ISIS and the resulting refugee crisis, American policymakers are struggling to address an increasingly complex web of security challenges. What is certain, however, is that American leadership is needed more than ever before to ensure the continued strength of the global order.

The following event will discuss the Extending American Power project’s findings and provide an opportunity to hear from experts on both sides of the aisle on ways the U.S. can pursue a pragmatic and sustainable strategy for engagement in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. The bi-partisan nature of this project has been a driving factor, and the final report has been endorsed and signed by high-level policymakers from both parties, including the Hon. Kurt Campbell, the Hon. Eric Edelman, the Hon. Michèle Flournoy, Mr. Richard Fontaine, the Hon. Stephen J. Hadley, Ms. Julianne Smith, the Hon. James Steinberg, and the Hon. Robert Zoellick [right – a board member of the National Endowment for Democracy].
