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.

Global Ethics Weekly: Human Rights on the Ground, with Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox

Quinnipiac's Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox discusses her work researching the conception of human rights in a community in rural India. She tells the story of Chaya Kakade, a woman who went on a hunger strike after the Indian government proposed a tax on sanitary napkins, and has since built her own production center in Latur. How does Kakade understand human rights? How can Westerners move beyond a legalistic view of the concept?

The Future is Asian, with Parag Khanna

"The rise of China is not the biggest story in the world," says Parag Khanna. "The Asianization of Asia, the return of Asia, the rise of the Asian system, is the biggest story in the world." This new Asian system, where business, technology, globalization, and geopolitics are intertwined, stretches from Japan to Saudi Arabia, from Australia to Russia, and Indonesia to Turkey, linking 5 billion people.

China's Cognitive Warfare, with Rachael Burton

How is China influencing democracies such as Taiwan, Korea, and the United States? "I think there are three areas that you can look at," says Asia security analyst Rachael Burton. "The first is narrative dominance, which I would call a form of cognitive warfare. Beijing has been able to set the terms of debate . . . and once you're asking the questions, then you're able to drive intellectuals or policymakers to a certain answer."
