International Security Studies at Yale University Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy presents
Emma Ashford, Senior Fellow with the Reimagining US Grand Strategy program at the Stimson Center and Stephen Wertheim, Visiting Lecturer, Yale Law School and Senior Fellow, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace:
“The Future of U.S. Foreign Policy in an Age of Great-Power Competition.”
Ashford works on a variety of issues pertaining to US foreign policy, international security, and global energy markets. Her first book, Oil, the State, and War: The Foreign Policies of Petrostates (2022), explores the international security ramifications of oil production and export in states such as Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Venezuela.
A historian of US foreign policy, Wertheim’s book, Tomorrow, the World: The Birth of U.S. Global Supremacy (2020), traces the intellectual path that brought the United States from isolationism to today’s endless wars, questioning the wisdom of US supremacy.
The conversation will be moderated by Michael Brenes, Interim Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy and Lecturer in History.
