Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Kim Holmes, executive vice president at the Heritage Foundation, on the challenge to the international order and its implications for transatlantic relations.
As a historian of U.S. political movements and ideology, Holmes writes about the United States' place in the world and its changing political landscape. His latest book, The Closing of the Liberal Mind (Encounter, April 2016), reveals how liberals in the United States are turning their backs on their traditions and have become a force for “illiberalism”—namely, denying their fellow Americans’ rights and freedoms. His previous books include Rebound: Getting America Back to Great (2013) and Liberty's Best Hope: American Leadership for the 21st Century (2008).
Holmes was the Heritage Foundation’s vice president for foreign and defense policy studies and director of the Davis Institute for International Studies from 1991 through 2012, except for 2002 to 2005 when he served as a U.S. assistant secretary of state for international organization affairs. Holmes joined Heritage in 1985 and rose to vice president in 1991.
Previous appointments include to the Defense Policy Board, as the U.S. defense secretary’s primary resource for expert outside advice; to the Board of Directors of the Center for International Private Enterprise; and as public member of the U.S. delegation to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
