The New U.S. National Security Strategy

Implications for International Security

15.02.2018 | 18:00 - 20:00 | Bonner Universitätsforum Bonn | Nur für geladene Gäste



Update: Please note the new event venue.

Joint discussion by the German Council on Foreign Relation, Forum NRW/Bonn, in cooperation with the Center for International Security and Governance.

As a policy guideline, the American National Security Strategy not only outlines the major strategic priorities of the U.S. in the domains of defense and foreign affairs, but also offers important insights into America’s relations with the world. In light of the Trump administration’s at times erratic and highly confrontational conduct of foreign and security policy, the new security strategy may shed some light on the underlying tensions within the Republican administration, on the future direction of a U.S. foreign policy caught between Trumpian isolationism and pressures for international engagement, and on the prospective evolution of America’s relationship with its global partners.
