On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine. This unprovoked war has pushed the United States and its allies to strengthen their relationships and unify around support for Ukrainians. Will this renewed unity last and, if so, what does that mean for the United States? What ramifications are felt today as a result of U.S. relations with countries around the world? From condemnatory rhetoric to regime changes, the heavy influence wielded by the United States in separate regions reverberates around the world.
In an evening of eight-minute talks, seven Furman professors of politics and international affairs will discuss the United States’ engagement with various regions and how it impacts the U. S.’s ability to promote American interests and values more broadly. Have we missed opportunities for better relations? What is the impact today of U.S. foreign policy in Africa, Latin America, China, Russia, Europe, and the Middle East? We hope you’ll join us March 22 at 6:30 p.m. as we contemplate these questions and more. Audience Q&A will follow.
