5:30 PM Reception
6:00 PM Program & Book Signing

Robert Kagan has long been a proponent of American engagement on the world stage, as he expressed in the title of his 2014 essay: "Superpowers Don't Get to Retire." In his latest book, the foreign policy advisor and historian argues for a reassertion of America's role as an enforcer of the post World War II "liberal world order" and predicts what could happen if the country continues its withdrawal from this global leadership role. 

Robert Kagan is the Stephen & Barbara Friedman Senior Fellow with the Project on International Order and Strategy in the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution. He is a contributing columnist at the Washington Post and the author of six foreign policy books including “The World America Made," a 2012 New York Times bestseller.

In his new book “The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World” Kagan writes, “The liberal world order is like a garden, ever under siege from the forces of history, the jungle whose vines and weeds constantly threaten to overwhelm it.” Join the Council to hear Kagan's reasoning on the importance of American leadership around the world.
