American Grand Strategy in the Age of Trump


15 January 2018


Egmont Palace, Place du Petit Sablon, 8 Bis, Kleine Zavel, 1000

In the first of a series on grand strategy, Egmont has the pleasure of inviting you to an evening conference with Professor Hal Brands, Henry A. Kissinger Distinguished Professor of Global Affairs at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington D.C., and the author of “American Grand Strategy in the Age of Trump” (Brookings, January 2018). Does Donald Trump’s presidency mean that American internationalism is dead? What type of grand strategy might America pursue in the age of Trump and after? What would happen if the United States radically pulled back from the world, as many leading academics – and, at certain moments, the current president – have advocated? How much military power does America need in the current international environment?
