“America First” and the Future of the Liberal International Order

Wednesday, November 14, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

Two years ago, President Donald Trump was elected on a nationalist “America First” platform, centered on economic protectionism, reduced immigration, de-regulation, and the rollback of civil rights protections. Internationally, this platform, faintly reminiscent of the anti-interventionist America First Committee of the early 1940s, has translated into an aggressive break with the internationalist—and interventionist—foreign policy of his predecessors, a rejection of multilateralism, the weakening of the transatlantic alliance and NATO’s collective security system, a hardline Iran containment policy in the Middle East, and the alienation of European allies. Is this the death knell for the liberal international order, created by the United States in its own image after the devastation of two world wars? What is the end goal of President Trump’s foreign policy, his vision for a new global order, and the role of the United States? What opportunities emerge for European countries, Canada, or China to take the global lead in the promotion of open societies, collective security, free trade and alternative energy resources? Join a panel of international foreign policy experts for a conversation on the contours and impact of President Trump’s foreign policy and the future of a new liberal international order.  

Moderator: Sylvia Maier, Clinical Associate Professor, NYU SPS Center for Global Affairs
