2014 US Foreign Policy Conference
17-19 September 2014
The US Foreign Policy Conference, co-sponsored by the CIS, will take place September 17-19, 2014
, at the LSE. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Global Perspectives’, reflecting the widespread impact of US foreign policy. Deep histories animate American engagements almost everywhere. The United States dominates the settlements of the global economy and defines the terms of international development. It is the state looked to in times of international crisis, and to lead in addressing global challenges. Yet the power and purpose behind US decision-making is the subject of perpetual debate. Critical approaches contrast American values with US actions. And America’s polarised domestic politics betray a profound ambivalence to its international role. Call for papers
