  • Foreign Policy Stakes of the 2020 Election: Rebecca Lissner, Mira Rapp-Hooper, & Max Boot

    2020 Election Series Part 1: The Foreign Policy Stakes

    As the country prepares for a presidential election of historic significance and charts its course in a post-pandemic world, the US has been forced to rethink its relationships to its allies, its adversaries, and even its own technology sector, in order to maintain its position as the world’s leading power. Foreign policy experts Rebecca Lissner and Mira Rapp-Hooper discuss the key challenges facing the US in the 21st Century, including US-China relations, economic interdependence, preparing for non-military threats, and what needs to be done to be better prepared if there is another global pandemic. The discussion is moderated by Max Boot, historian, best-selling author, columnist, and foreign-policy analyst.
