The Fireside Forum on Foreign Policy: Policy & Politics in an Election Year
February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Domestic Politics and Diplomacy
Domestic political concerns often shape the conduct of U.S. foreign policy. The impact of partisan politics on the Trump administration’s Ukraine policy is at the center of the impeachment proceedings. Ambassadors are often appointed from among the ranks of polictical supportes rather than the professional diplomatic corps. Relations with other nations are shaped by domestic issues driving the next election cycle. Join us for a timely look at what happens when politics does not stop at the water’s edge.
