Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has gone from being one of two “superpowers” to being the leading world power, but there are signs that American dominance is eroding as countries like China and India grow and prosper. And new threats have emerged – pandemics, resource depletion, climate change – that no one nation can solve alone. What does all this mean for our national security and our relationships with the other nations of the world? Join us for this deliberative discussion where we weigh the benefits and tradeoffs of three approaches to this issue using an NIF issue guide. Light refreshments will be served.
