As President-Elect Joseph Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris begin to form their administration, the United States will soon turn its gaze to the next four years of foreign policy and national security. The new administration will face an enormous range of military, economic, and diplomatic challenges that will test—but also provide opportunities for—U.S. competitiveness at home and abroad.
To assess these challenges and the national security implications of the 2020 election, CNAS CEO Richard Fontaine hosted a conversation with Dr. Kurt Campbell, Chairman of the CNAS Board of Directors and author of Difficult Transitions: Why Presidents Fail in Foreign Policy at the Outset of Power, on Monday, November 9, 2020.
Immediately following the conversation, Mr. Fontaine was joined by Carrie Cordero, CNAS Robert M. Gates Senior Fellow, Loren DeJonge Schulman, CNAS Adjunct Senior Fellow, Kara Frederick, CNAS Fellow for Technology and National Security, and other CNAS experts for an interactive panel discussion featuring live polling and Q&A from the online audience.
