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.

The Living Legacy of the First World War

Five Fellows from "The Living Legacy of the First World War" project present their work. Their talks cover the history of war-induced psychological trauma and how it has been dealt with in the U.S. military; the impact of the defense industry's profit motive on U.S. foreign policy; haunting photos of severely facially disfigured soldiers; the legacy of press censorship during WWI; and the humanitarianism of Jane Addams.

Myanmar and the Plight of the Rohingya, with Elliott Prasse-Freeman

The Rohingya are seen as fundamentally 'other,' says Prasse-Freeman. "Hence, even if they have formal citizenship, they wouldn't really be accepted as citizens, as full members of the polity." Could Aung San Suu Kyi have done more to prevent the persecution? How important was the hate speech on Facebook? How can the situation be resolved? Don't miss this informative and troubling conversation.

Global Ethics Weekly: The Right to Science, with Helle Porsdam

The right to benefit from scientific progress was enshrined in the United Nations' 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, explains University of Copenhagen's Professor Helle Porsdam. Unfortunately, many people, including scientists and policymakers, don't know much about it. How was the right to science developed? What are examples? And, with an anti-science administration in the White House today, what are the contentious issues?
