Rebecca Lissner and Mira Rapp-Hooper: Re-Imagining U.S. Foreign Policy
Foreign policy experts Rebecca Lissner and Mira Rapp-Hooper paint a provocative picture of the United States’ future. As the country prepares for a presidential election of historic significance and charts its course in a post-pandemic world, they say the United States must reject the temptation to embrace nationalistic calls for closure, global disengagement or self-sufficiency, and instead redouble its commitment to international leadership, economic interdependence and alliances in an “open world.”
Lissner and Rapp-Hooper say that despite considerable foreign threats, the greatest dangers to the United States come from within: decades of underinvestment in the American people, economy and democracy; misalignment of the tech sector with the nation’s vital interests; and acute partisan polarization. Come for an engaging discussion on how the future of American power in a post-COVID world must build on the foundation of 21st century competitiveness.
