Welcome to the Jungle? Prospects for the International Order After Trump

Tuesday, February 18th
Heritage Hall
Catholic University
6:00-8:00 P.M.

In his book The Jungle Grows Back, Robert Kagan argues that a foreign policy of restraint would be disastrous for the United States, causing the world to revert to its normal state: a jungle,  characterized by poverty, autocracy, interstate competition and even major power war.

In The False Promise of Liberal Order, Patrick Porter dismisses nostalgia about the liberal order, observing that the world is too conflicted and dangerous to be ordered liberally, and that striving to convert the world to democracy will destroy it at home.

Join us for a discussion of how changing international circumstances shape our view of the past and our preferences for the future of US foreign policy.
