As the Arab Spring unfolded, debates erupted among progressives over the best
course of action. The arguments laid bare an uncomfortable truth: In the realm
of foreign policy, progressive first principles are still being contested. We know
what conservatives stand for and why their ideas have failed us. But what does
a progressive foreign policy look like?
In the winter issue of Democracy, we invited Charles Kupchan, Bruce Jentleson, Tom Perriello, Rosa Brooks, and Rachel Kleinfeld to present their vision for America’s role in the world. Our symposium on progressive first principles in foreign policy covers a broad range of topics, from grand strategy, to public diplomacy, to democracy promotion.
Please join us Wednesday, January 11, for a panel discussion at the New America Foundation on how progressives should reframe U.S. foreign policy in a turbulent world.
