The Colorado Springs World Affairs Council’s 5th Annual “State of the World” Discussion

America & the World in a New Election Year

Back by popular demand and fresh from accompanying Vice President Biden to Davos …

Three years ago, Steve Clemons gave us a riveting “look ahead” at President Obama’s second term, then with a new foreign and national security policy team.  Three years later, the world seems to be in a much more volatile state, and the American body politic appears to be immobilized by political polarization, social conflict, and economic malaise.  What happens in America doesn’t stay in America—our domestic issues have foreign policy repercussions.

 How should we think about the year ahead, America’s role in it, and our role as citizens?60e3b87f-35dd-4995-b83b-28f5cad7dbf5
