The future of America’s global role: A debate

Past Event

On Monday, May 14, the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University, the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth, and the George W. Bush Presidential Center hosted a debate on the changing future of America’s global role at the George W. Bush Institute. This debate, convened by the Brookings Institution’s Foreign Policy program and the Charles Koch Institute, in partnership with POLITICO, is the fourth in a series of thematic debates on America’s role in the world.

Hosted in cities around the United States, this series seeks to foster a vigorous, civil, and constructive national discussion on the future of American foreign policy. The Dallas debate addressed the nature of American interests in a globalized world, the role of values in U.S. foreign policy, and how the United States should focus its diplomatic military, and economic engagement in the 21st century.

Holly Kuzmich, executive director of the George W. Bush Institute and senior vice president at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, provided opening remarks.
