SOLD OUT: IPS: President Trump & Foreign Policy
What Are The Challenges?

Thursday, February 2, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Dr. Charles A. Kupchan, professor, author and a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will open the Council’s 2017 International Perspective Series on Thursday, February 2, with a topic on the minds of many globally focused people: “President Trump & Foreign Policy: What Are the Challenges?”

In his 2012 book No One’s World; The West, the Rising Rest and the Coming Global Turn, he wrote, “The twenty-first century will not be America’s, China’s, Asia’s or anyone else’s. It will belong to no one.”

Dr. Kupchan’s earlier book, How Enemies Become Friends: The Source of Stable Peace, is described as “a bold and innovative account of how nations escape geopolitical competition and replace hostility with friendship.” It promotes diplomatic engagement as a way to build trust.

And, now, with his extensive background of global studies, Dr. Kupchan will assess the challenges facing the new administration.

Dr. Kupchan is professor of International Affairs in the School of Foreign Service and Government Department at Georgetown University. He also is the Whitney H. Shephardson Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. During the first Clinton administration, he was Director for European Affairs on the National Security Council. And before joining the NSC, he was a member of the U.S. Department of State Policy Planning Staff.

His books include The End of the America Era: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Geopolitics of the Twenty-first Century (2002), Power in Transition: The Peaceful Change of International Order (2001), Civic Engagement in the Atlantic Community (1999), Atlantic Security: Contending Visions (1998), Nationalism and Nationalities in the New Europe (1995), The Vulnerability of Empire (1994) and The Persian Gulf and the West (1987).

Kupchan earned a Magna Cum Laude B.A. in East Asian Studies at Harvard and holds Master Degrees in Politics and Philosophy from Oxford University. In addition, he has been a visiting scholar at Harvard University’s Center for International Affairs, Columbia University’s Institute for War and Peace Studies, the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London, the Centre d’Etude et de Recherches Internationales in Paris and the Institute for International Policy Studies in Tokyo. During 2006-2007, he was the Henry A. Kissinger Scholar at the Library of Congress and was a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
