Indiana Council on World Affairs | Great Decisions - U.S. Global Engagement

March 27

Topic: U.S. Global Engagement & the Military

Briefing Book Author:  Gordon Adams

At this turning point for U.S. global engagement with a military role, some argue an “America First” paradigm, with a large military to match, while others envision a more traditional assertion of U.S. multilateral leadership. Still others favor greater restraint and cautious cooperation.  The role of U.S. military force, arms sales, and security assistance, in the shifting international system, will be considered.
