As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
Atlantic Council Front Page is our premier live ideas platform for global leaders to discuss the defining challenges of our time.
Atlantic Council Front Page is a new virtual event series featuring top newsmakers across multiple digital platforms. Harnessing the convening power and expertise of the Council’s thirteen programs and centers, #ACFrontPage leverages the Council’s capabilities in social media, press, and digital outreach to spotlight the world’s most prominent leaders and the most compelling ideas across sectors and engage new audiences eager for nonpartisan and constructive solutions to current global challenges. This widely promoted program features the Council’s most important guests and content serving as the highlight of our programming each week.
Please join the Atlantic Council on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. EDT for a conversation featuring House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn. Representative Clyburn will discuss the pressing issues of racism, bias, and inequality in the United States, and how these challenges affect America’s standing and role in the world. The United States became a global leader by building a political and economic order worthy of emulation, but it sometimes has struggled to match its words to actions. Today, continuing systemic inequalities, the inability to effectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, political and fiscal gridlock, and lack of clear outcomes in extended US military operations abroad have renewed calls for the US to address its urgent domestic problems on a priority basis. How can the United States restore its reputation and influence by getting its own house in order and generating support for a calibrated global engagement approach? What are the Congress’ foreign policy priorities in the new decade, especially on questions of war and peace?
This live event is part of the Atlantic Council’s #ACFrontPage event series, a new ideas platform spotlighting global leaders who are championing constructive solutions to global challenges, and is hosted by the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security’s New American Engagement Initiative.
