Great Power Rivalry and U.S. Foreign Policy in the Trump Era


  • Dr. Thomas Wright, director of the Center for the United States and Europe and a senior fellow in the Project on International Order and Strategy at the Brookings Institution
  • Dr. James Goldgeier, Professor of International Relations and served as Dean of the School of International Service at American University

On September 13th, the Pell Center will host Dr. Thomas Wright and Professor James Goldgeier for a conversation on U.S. foreign policy and great power rivalry in the Trump Era. Thomas Wright is the director of the Center on the United States and Europe and a senior fellow in the Project on International Order and Strategy at the Brookings Institution. He is also the author of All Measures Short of War: The Contest for the 21st Century and the Future of American Power, published by Yale University Press earlier this year. All Measures Short of War has been described as a “bracing antidote to simplistic thinking about complex policies,” (Publisher’s Weekly) and as an “immensely useful and lucid analysis of the current global balance of power.” (The Financial Times). Dr. Wright will provide an overview of some of the main themes of his book—the revival of great power competition, and the growing challenges to the international liberal order—before giving his assessment of how the Trump Administration has chosen to navigate this difficult geopolitical environment. Professor James Goldgeier, professor of international relations at American University and visiting senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will serve as discussant. Dr. Iskander Rehman, senior fellow for international relations at the Pell Center, will moderate the discussion.
