America’s Role in the World

We cordially invite you to a virtual discussion on:

“America’s Role in the World: An Assessment of Current US Foreign Policy”
Wednesday, November 22, 2023 | 6.30 p.m. CET

with Peter Rough,
Senior Fellow and Director of the Center on Europe and Eurasia, Hudson Institute
in conversation with Dr. Hendrik W. Ohnesorge,
Managing Director of the Center for Global Studies, University of Bonn

“America is back” was President Joe Biden’s key foreign policy message shortly after his inauguration. He thus heralded a clear change of course from the Trump Administration, which had tapped into the long-running isolationist strain in US foreign policy, questioning the value of long-standing alliances and international engagement. What we did not know in 2021 is that some of the major, long-term challenges – the rise of authoritarianism around the world and China’s growing ambitions, the accelerating climate crisis and its effects – would soon be overshadowed by wars in Ukraine and the Middle East. How is the Biden Administration tackling these multiple crises? Which role is America playing in the world today and how might its positioning change should the Republican Party win back the White House in 2024? And what are the implications for the transatlantic partnership?

We look forward to discussing these and other questions with Peter Rough, expert on US foreign policy and transatlantic relations at the conservative Washington think tank Hudson Institute and Dr. Hendrik Ohnesorge of the University of Bonn. You are cordially invited to join the conversation!
