Past Event

The Long Game

10:00 - 11:00 AM EDT

Seen as the definitive insider’s look at the Obama Administration’s foreign policy, The Long Game argues that the 44th president redefined the purpose and exercise of American power for a new and complex era. Reflecting on his time at the State Department, Pentagon, and the White House, Derek Chollet tackles head-on the idea that President Obama’s foreign policy has been feckless or weak. Is he right that the shifting course of American foreign policy in recent years will position the United States to better lead and succeed in the future?

Please join the Center for American Progress for an event celebrating the June release of The Long Game and a timely discussion on President Obama’s foreign policy legacy and lessons offered for the next president.

Introductory remarks:
Vikram Singh, Vice President for National Security and International Policy, Center for American Progress

Distinguished guest:
Derek Chollet, Counselor and Senior Adviser for Security and Defense Policy, German Marshall Fund of the United States; former Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs
