In October 2020, the NCAFP launched an inaugural series tackling difficult questions surrounding the future of globalization. In a year deeply scarred by a global pandemic, and now edging closer to a significant presidential transition, it is vital to assess the role of the United States in the international system as foreign policy appears to be influenced by domestic policies and concerns more than ever before. With an eye toward coercive economic policies, trade, and global governance, can a leadership role still be played by the United States on the international stage? What style of global engagement will reap the greatest benefits for U.S. policy? Will regional or thematic reorganization coopt extant multilateral institutions? Join the NCAFP as our distinguished panelists address these questions and more.
