Global Discord and What We Need from the Next President

Published Date







Disorder and crisis appears to define international affairs as President Obama heads into his final stretch and the 2016 presidential campaign starts. Is America actually facing unprecedented global disorder and possibly a decline in its stature? Can the next president reverse the current tumult and calm the waters and, if so, how? What do we most need in the next president to manage American international interests and what surprises may she or he face in 2017? One of Minnesota's most distinguished former diplomats — Brian Atwood — will join us to sort out these thorny and important challenges.
