Changes in the World Order and the Practitioner Challenge

Over the past trimester, the "Fractured Globalization" discussions have looked at how great power competition will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and in particular, the future of the U.S. relationship with China. Of critical importance is the role that America's European allies and NATO will play during this time. Many ideas were proposed and discussed, but how feasible are they given political and institutional realities? We now wish to connect the strategic-intellectual level to the national security operational level.

Ambassador Nicholas Burns has had a distinguished career in the U.S. government dealing with these questions. He will present his thoughts on the challenges we face in the coming decade. He will be joined by Admiral Shoshana Chatfield, President of the Naval War College, who will offer her perspective and experiences in connecting grand strategy and visions to how national security policy is formulated.
