ENTER: NEW AMERICA FOUNDATION
Ensuring the security, liberty, and general welfare of the American people in an increasingly complex and interdependent world requires a rethinking of America’s international strategy. Many of the assumptions guiding U.S. foreign policy over the past several years have been at odds with emerging world realities and America’s internationalist tradition. The purpose of the American Strategy Project is to promote a new American internationalism by updating what is best in America’s foreign policy tradition for the 21st century. A foreign policy strategy guided by American internationalism would combine a tough-minded realism about America’s interests in the world with a pragmatic idealism about the kind of world order that is best suited to America’s democratic way of life. more...
Through a series of brownbag lunches, salon discussions and policy conferences, The American Strategy Program will foster robust debate and encourage new thinking on America’s strategic choices.
