Trump's America and the World: the Perils of a US Disengagement from Global Politics

03/05/2018, Roma

Prof. Stephen G. Brooks will draw upon his recently published book America Abroad. The United States' Global Role in the 21st Century (coauthored with William Wohlforth) to address the two most important questions concerning the United States' role in the world: its apparent decline and its potential rebound. Brooks will analyse the current grand strategic debate over whether America should "stay engaged" or should now "come home" and argue that Washington would be wise to sustain the core elements of the so-called "deep engagement" grand strategy, since pulling back from the world would have a variety of negative consequences for both the US and its global partners, including Europe.
