What are America's national interests today?
What are America’s national interests today, and how does our foreign policy serve best serve those goals? The end of the Cold War ushered in a “unipolar moment” of American geopolitical dominance, in which we enforced a “rules-based liberal international order” of freedom and increasing economic prosperity across the world. The last 30 years have almost unquestionably been the highpoint of American exceptionalism. But the rise of great power competitors in Russia and China and American military foibles in Iraq and Afghanistan have triggered a reconsideration of the “unipolar moment.” The Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, has thrown the future of the liberal international order in flux, as well as divded Americans over how to respond. What does the war in Ukraine mean for the future of American foreign policy, and for the future of the liberal international order? What should America’s role be in defending that order?
