Please join us at the Atlantic Council as we launch a new series on “America’s Role in the World” that will offer a platform for all US presidential candidates to speak on foreign policy and national security.  As part of this series, the Council is pleased to welcome Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who will speak on Wednesday, July 8 at 10:00 a.m.

This is Senator Graham’s first major foreign policy speech as a 2016 presidential candidate. He will discuss why strong US leadership and comprehensive strategies, which include military and diplomatic options, are needed to tackle security challenges such as a nuclear Iran and radical extremist ambitions in the Middle East, and a wide range of other threats. 

This series is part of the Atlantic Council’s Strategy Initiative led by the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. This Strategy Initiative seeks to encourage and support a more constructive and substantive public dialogue on US strategy in a complex and dynamic global context. 

Senator Graham’s remarks will be followed by a moderated discussion with Jake Tapper and an audience Q&A session. We look forward to having you at the Atlantic Council for what is sure to be an exciting event.
