Trump and the Future of American Power

Trump and the Future of American Power

Is Trump the "new normal"?

WHAT: Is the United States in retreat? Should Donald Trump’s approach to foreign policy be viewed as an aberration or as the “new normal” in American foreign policy? In this lecture, Professor Peter Trubowitz (Department Head of International Relations & Director of the US Centre, LSE) will argue that Trump’s foreign policy is symptomatic of a mounting popular backlash in the United States against long-standing liberal internationalist policies and practices. He will discuss the roots of this backlash and consider its implications for the future of American power and the liberal international order.

Chair: Spyros Economides, Associate Professor in International Relations and European Politics, LSE Director of the Hellenic Observatory.
