A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order
Wednesday, March 1, 2017 08:00 AM to 09:15 AM
The rules, policies, and institutions that have guided the world since World War II have largely run their course. The Middle East is in chaos, Asia is threatened by China's rise and a reckless North Korea, and Europe, for decades the world's most stable region, is now anything but. American foreign policy has at times made matters worse, both by what the U.S. has done and by what it has failed to do.
How should the U.S. act towards China and Russia, as well as in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East? What can America do to address its dysfunctional politics, mounting debt, and the lack of agreement on the nature of its relationship with the world?
Richard N. Haass is president of the Council on Foreign Relations and the author of A World in Disarray. He was also director of policy planning for the U.S. State Department under Secretary of State Colin Powell, U.S. coordinator for policy toward the future of Afghanistan, and U.S. envoy to the Northern Ireland peace process.
