U.S. Elections and Brexit: Can Liberalism Survive?

From the rise of religious extremism and ISIS, to the growing influence of authoritarian and state capitalist countries like Russia and China, to the disintegration of the EU-U.S. relationship--liberalism is under siege. The Brexit vote has placed ever more urgency on this question and the U.S. election choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could serve as a referendum on how the country engages in world politics. Join us to hear perspectives on which values will dominate the future of global politics.

Nikolas K. Gvosdev is a professor of national security studies at the U.S. Naval War College and a senior editor at The National Interest. He is the author or editor of a number of books, including the co-author of The Receding Shadow of the Prophet: The Rise and Fall of Political Islam.

Stephen M. Walt is the Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School. His books include The Origins of Alliances, Revolution and War, and Taming American Power: The Global Response to U.S. Primacy.

Carnegie Council Senior Fellows David Speedie and Devin Stewart will lead the discussion.
