The German Marshall Fund, in partnership with the Casimir Pulaski Foundation, is hosting a panel at the Warsaw Security Forum, which will take place November 8-9, 2017. The Warsaw Security Forum (WSF) aims to improve understanding of European and NATO security and defense policy through dialogue with policymakers and experts. The panel will be livestreamed on the WSF website. Follow the discussion using #WSF2017.
In part resource-constrained, in part responding to an isolationist impulse at home, the United States, for a number of years now has been receding its influence around the world. With the new administration in place, further uncertainty prevails over the direction of U.S. foreign policy. Will President Trump’s disregard for the established rules of the game present the new administration with an unparalleled opportunity to disrupt the status quo? Or will the United States renew its commitment to the transatlantic alliance and along with its allies from Europe and Asia together face the challenges of a multipolar world? Can U.S. foreign policy move from reactive and responsive into more strategically managed? And will U.S. public opinion reject isolationism as a way forward? Finally, what are the limits of transactional foreign policy? And will a values-based system prevail in the West?
