2015 Plenary 5: The American Fix: Best Dosage for Optimal Results

The panel discussed whether the U.S. has the will to continue its self-appointed role of the  international defender of freedom, and how much America the rest the world is ready to accept. The conversation also touched on the Obama administration’s perceived shift away from America’s interventionist tendency and the potential “pendulum swing” that could take place following the 2016 U.S. election. Panelists gave consideration to what a modern mix of military power and soft power diplomacy might look like for a new U.S. approach to foreign policy.
