One of the components of the bipartisan consensus that has governed U.S. foreign policy for the last three decades is that democracy promotion is not only an ethical duty but something that advances U.S. security. Ambassador Adrian Basora has argued, "Protection of the democratic order, now under challenge, must...be one of the priorities weighed in our strategic decision making analysis and policy process."
To what extent is the promotion of democracy around the world still a priority under the Trump administration—and is democracy in recession as the U.S. contemplates disengagement?
Amb. Adrian Basora is a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and co-chair of its Eurasia Program. He is the former ambassador of the United States to the Czech Republic.
