The Retreat of Western Liberalism: A Fireside Chat with Edward Luce
By Foresight, Strategy, and Risks Initiative
On June 14, the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security’s Foresight, Strategy, and Risks Initiative (FSR) hosted a fireside chat with Mr. Luce. The chat was moderated by FSR’s director, Dr. Mathew Burrows, and featured opening remarks from Dr. Paula Stern, former chairwoman of the US International Trade Commission in the Reagan administration and Atlantic Council board member. Expanding on many of the arguments made in his book, Luce offered a detailed projection of the consequences of the Trump administration, the rise of European populism, and a forward-thinking analysis of what those who believe in enlightenment values must do to defend them from the multiple onslaughts they face in the coming years.
