US Foreign Policy and the 2016 Election

Walter Russell Mead

Four of America’s most distinguished foreign policy experts explore crucial issues that our next President must face.

Unprecedented turmoil in the Middle East. Belligerence and muscle-flexing from Moscow. Economic and political uncertainties in Europe. A China determined to supplant U.S. influence in Asia. How should America’s next president deal with all this? What can we learn from this year’s election campaign about the likely future of U.S. foreign policy?

A free-wheeling discussion with four of America’s most distinguished experts: Hudson Institute’s Walter Russell Mead, Foreign Affairs editor Gideon Rose, Council on Foreign Relations expert, Carla Anne Robbins and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal.
