invites registrants in the "Future of American Foreign Policy" program
to view this discussion about the fundamental debate in American foreign policy today.

Engage or Retreat? American Views on U.S. Foreign Policy


The Wilson Center presents this discussion of the goals that Americans have chosen in their pursuit of engagement on the world stage. Washington is torn between two futures for US foreign policy: one of engagement and intervention that was established after WWII to prevent future conflict, another of retrenchment and retreat based on what is thought to be in the immediate self interest of the United States. Speakers on the video point out that the 2020 presidential election will provide an opportunity for the American public to critically assess the Trump administration’s America First foreign policy. The Wilson Center and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs released the 2019 Chicago Council Survey, a detailed look into Americans’ views on today’s vital issues, including the value of trade and military alliances, the threats posed by China, Iran, Russia, and other rivals, and how America should respond to immigration and climate change.
