America engaged: Attitudes toward US global leadership | LIVE STREAM

Strong global leadership has been a pillar of US foreign policy for more than half a century, but some believe the Trump administration’s America First agenda strays from the country’s enduring tradition of international engagement. But disengagement in the Middle East and an empty “pivot to Asia” in the Obama administration also signaled a similar drift from internationalism. For years, public support of the nation’s visible role in the world was a given, but is there a more fundamental shift in American thinking?

Join AEI and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs for the release of the Council’s 2018 report on American attitudes toward US global leadership and a discussion on the future of America’s role in the world.
