Global Security Forum: Foreign Policy in an Era of Domestic Division

Play video

On 7 March 2022, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will hold an online conference to discuss a new CSIS International Security Program report exploring whether and how divisions, such as political, geographic, racial and socioeconomic, impact U.S. national security and engagements abroad, identifying opportunities for cooperation. US international engagement is of utmost importance in the current international climate, and the report and this discussion seek to help policymakers understand the divides and where opportunities for coming together lie.

A live recording of the event will be available above.
