Big Ideas. Big Challenges: What’s America’s global end game?
500 W Hwy 24
Independence, MO, 64050
COVID-19 disruption, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, significant leadership turnovers, and ongoing economic turbulence have created historic challenges that drive concerns about the stability, security, and strength of the global community. And before that? There were already signs of a shifting power balance developing in key corners of the world—China growing its role in global infrastructure efforts; Russia vying for increased power in key neighboring regions; domestic fires in the U.S. impacting its focus on defense, diplomatic and development efforts abroad.
Facing extraordinarily complex and dynamic circumstances, leaders have important decisions to make about America’s role in the world.
Join American Public Square at Jewell in collaboration with the International Relations Council at the Truman Presidential Library for a conversation on U.S. international relations. A panel of diplomatic, military, and academic experts will examine the challenging circumstances America faces in maintaining global strength, while managing ongoing political, social, and economic tension at home.
This event will be moderated by Matthew Hughes, Executive Director, IRC
Distinguished Panelists Include:
- Ambassador Francisco Seixas da Costa
