Dr. Daniel Green: “The US as a Great Power: Policies and Impacts across History”
This talk will be a quick survey of the past 200 years, to discuss first what the US did to become a great power in the nineteenth century and, second, what it did to exert its power, influence and export its values to shape the international system in the twentieth century, up to today. The US impact has been world-transforming since 1917, but the challenge it has faced in the last few years is a very new one - to grapple with a global system not seen before in history, with many great powers, each with a very different cultural and historical background.

Dr. Stuart Kaufman:"The Grand Strategy of Donald Trump"
Like its predecessors, the Trump Administration published a National Security Strategy document outlining its priorities, goals, and grand strategy for achieving national security.

What is the state of American national security and its influence in the world? From handling Covid to the Iran nuclear deal to managing the rise of China, let's take a look.
