U.S. foreign policy is in need of serious reappraisal and reform. The State Department is a good place for the next administration to start.
On this inaugural episode of the CSS podcast, host Justin Logan is joined by Claes G. Ryn, Professor of Politics at the Catholic University of America and editor of the scholarly journal Humanitas, plus William S. Smith, Managing Director of the Center for the Study of Statesmanship.
We are particularly interested in papers that speak to the “moral, cultural, political, social, and financial costs of imperial ambitions, military interventions, and nation-building.”
Should the United States embrace a new foreign policy of restraint, or must we continue to defend "the liberal world order"? Patrick Porter and Robert Kagan debate. Kathy Gilsinan moderates.
Paul Miller and Michael Desch both seek to connect American foreign policy to higher ideals, with vastly divergent conclusions.
