The Diplomat mentions the Atlantic Council for hosting an event on applying American power in the 21st century:
On Friday the Pacific Realist had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion on applying American power that was hosted by the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. The other panelists were Brent Scowcroft Center Director Barry Pavel; Jones Group International Senior Associate Jeff Lightfoot; RAND Political Scientist Stacie Pettyjohn; and John Hudson, a staff writer for Foreign Policy and one of The Cable guys, who moderated the conversation. A video and summary of the event is available on the Atlantic Council’s website, and I’m embedding the video below.
It was a far reaching discussion and I’ll probably return to some of the topics on this blog in the coming days. One of the topics, in particular, seemed particularly noteworthy in the light of President Obama’s current trip to Asia, as well as the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine.
