Foreign Policy Challenges in Obama’s Second Term, New America, Washington DC

Foreign Policy Challenges in Obama’s Second Term

On Tuesday, November 26, the New America Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, and the Center for a New American Security will host an in-depth discussion on the foreign policy challenges faced by the Obama administration in its second term. With a politically turbulent Middle East, a financially teetering EU, and an increasingly technologically competitive Asia-Pacific region, Obama and his administration will face critical foreign policy decisions in the second half of his final term.

This event continues a unique collaboration among these institutions in the presidential campaign season, “Election 2012: The National Security Agenda.” Past conversations covered the U.S. role in the world, policy in East Asia, and the national security budget.
