UT-Princeton Workshop, Oct. 7-8, 2005

"The Future of American Internationalism"

Tue, Oct 4, 2005

Just about everyone thinks that the liberal-internationalist compact that took root after World War II has run its course and that we have entered a new phase in foreign policy. While still ostensibly internationalist, the new policy direction lacks the kind of commitment to international institutions and multilateralism that earmarked our foreign policy for most of the last half-century. What is less clear is why the liberal-internationalist compact has come apart and whether it can be resuscitated. This conference, organized by the University of Texas at Austin and Princeton University, will bring together scholars and practitioners to examine this issue in the context of the political, social and cultural processes underway in America.
