What does Amereican foreign policy look like in 2021 under a Biden Administration? Is America truly "back", as Biden says, or does the United States have to contend with rising global powers like China, Russia, and Iran? From Afghanistan to Syria, and from Ukraine to North Korea, the United States remains a major global power, but a power that needs to cooperate with at least one other major power in a new multipolar world. This talk will address what that means for America's national interests around the world, the future of democracy and human rights, and the limits and capabilities of what the United States can do for the foreseeable future.
