The United States’ global leadership crisis is not just a blip invoked by an “America First” approach to foreign policy or the COVID-19 pandemic, but rather the product of forces that could endure for decades. In a new world order of historical upheaval, how should America address its weakening global influence, navigate the rise of autocratic adversaries, and preserve economic interdependence? Confronting the greatest geopolitical challenges of our time, foreign policy experts Rebecca Lissner and Mira Rapp-Hooper join the Council to share their vision for a new American grand strategy of openness beyond the 2020 election.

Copies of Rebecca Lissner and Mira Rapp-Hooper’s 2020 book An Open World: How America Can Win the Contest for Twenty-First Century Order are available for pre-sale from our local Chicago book partner The Book Cellar.
