Event Description

The current administration has fostered discord amongst Americans over foreign policy decisions that include stricter immigration laws, the implementation of new tariffs, and the adjustment of sanctions on international state actors. Has a gap opened up between the U.S. national security community and the general public over foreign policy? What happens when the advice and recommendations of the expert community clashes with political realities?

This panel is part of the larger effort by the U.S. Global Engagement program to examine drivers in U.S. politics pushing the United States to disengage from international affairs.

Asha Castleberry is a professor in Fordham University's Political Science Department and a fellow at Foreign Policy Interrupted. She is also an adjunct fellow at American Security Project, a member of the Truman National Security Project's Defense Council, and a U.S. Army veteran.

Ali Wyne is a policy analyst at RAND Corporation, non-resident fellow with the Atlantic Council's Brent Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, and a security fellow with the Truman National Security Project.

This panel with foreign policy experts Asha Castleberry and Ali Wyne is part of a larger effort by Carnegie Council's U.S. Global Engagement Program to examine drivers in U.S. politics pushing the United States to disengage from international affairs.

The Ethics of the "Doorstep"

The "doorstep test" requires policymakers to be able to articulate how, and to what degree, something happening in the world connects to the day-to-day experience, needs, and interests of the citizenry. This construct requires honesty and reminds us that domestic policy and foreign policy ought to be linked.

Malaysian & Indonesian Elections, with Meredith Weiss & Jeremy Menchik

This fascinating conversation begins with a discussion of the critical importance of Southeast Asia, including the rise of China and its ambitions in the region. Then Professor Weiss focuses on Malaysia and the return of the formidable 93-year old Mahathir as prime minister. Next, Professor Menchik discusses the complex situation in Indonesia--a country with 17,000 islands and 300-plus ethnic groups--and the upcoming elections there.
