Special Virtual Event | The World in 2022

Feb 4, 2022
1:00pm to 2:00pm ET


One year into the Biden Administration, an array of hard national security choices fills the agenda. The stakes of competition with China continue to rise in critical arenas ranging from military strategy to supply chains to the battle against the spread of digital authoritarianism. The United States is out of Afghanistan, but a humanitarian catastrophe and new security threats spell an uncertain future for the country and the U.S. role. Russian provocations toward Ukraine are renewing the possibility of war in Europe. Uncertainty surrounding the next phase of the pandemic lingers.

How might 2022 unfold from here, and what courses should U.S. foreign policy and national security take? On Friday, February 4, CNAS hosted a special virtual event featuring three members of its Board of Directors—each a leading expert—for a forward-looking survey of the global landscape and America’s role in it.
