I was pleased to have John Ikenberry back in the virtual studio with us to focus in part on current American foreign policy under the Biden Administration. The immediate occasion was the recently concluded ‘Summit for Democracy’ called for by the President when he ran against then President Trump. More broadly I wanted to explore with John the rising tensions in the US-China relationship and its impact on the liberal international order that John has written and spoken about over the last two decades.
So join me and John as we explore current American foreign policy and how it is reshaping the global order.
