Akan Malici, a Furman University professor of politics and international affairs, advances a three-pronged approach for staving off partisan politics in foreign policy for the Biden administration: 1) disavow post-cold war foreign policy ideologies, 2) rein in U.S. defense spending, and 3) engage in a careful analysis of what America’s vital interests are, and bring the country’s commitments into alignment with these values.
