Senior Fellow Andrew Latham writes for The Hill on the United States’ contemporary debate on grand strategy and competing visions for how Washington’s foreign policy should approach a new global order of multipolar competition.
That the future course of U.S. grand strategy will be shaped by a degree of continuity seems unquestionable — the liberal internationalist and deep engagement instincts of the U.S. foreign policy establishment remain as strong as ever. But there are powerful systemic pressures (most emanating from the return of multipolar great-power competition) that are pushing in the direction of change.
